Spring’s sprung all across our collections! Let’s investigate what’s sprouted.
Our sheet music contains the Spring Festival March and Two Step, put out by the Chattanooga Spring Festival Association in 1899.
Check out this edition of the Crimson White‘s literary supplement released in spring 1953.
Publishers’ Bindings Online is a wonderful site to visit if you want to learn more about nineteenth and early twentieth century book bindings. The site includes items from the University of Alabama in addition to other repositories around the United States. Birds and Blossoms, from UA’s Richard Minsky collection, is a gorgeous example of this type of art from 1887.
March 20 was the official beginning of spring. While we may be in Alabama and avoiding the type of weather that hit the East Coast so hard this year, we’re also ready for some warmer days, especially as rain and chilly temperatures seem to be hanging on a bit longer than anyone here in Hoole would prefer. These girls from the Schaudies-Banks-Ragland photographs look like they agree!
