Cycling Claremont: The Gals of Harwood Court

as seen on Pinterest though, apparently, from the collections at ccdl.libraries.claremont.edu

Ivy covered buildings, a grassy quad. Harvard? Yale? Columbia? None of those. It is Pomona College. I don't know how long it has been since the buildings last looked like they do in the photo, but since Harwood has been around for a good ninety-five years (1921) there is enough of a time gap to accommodate multiple stylistic changes. Harwood's most recent renovations occurred in 2010, presenting a much more Southern California flavor. The photo isn't dated, so your guess is as good as mine - 1940s or 1950s?

What I should do is find the exact spot and recreate the image, today; so, I need three volunteers.
