Don’t believe me? Take a quick scan through my favorite blog of the week, Hopkins Retrospective, which features all sorts of cool visual history, from World War Two-era operating rooms to Gertrude Stein in the library to handsome lacrosse players from 1889 (above). Those mustaches! Those surly stares! A few more highlights below the jump:
