1950s Photo Location, Revealed

Students from a Bryn Mawr school packed another Bryn Mawr institution.

On Sunday, we asked readers to identify the location of two photos taken in the 1950s in the Bryn Mawr-Gladwyne Patch area.

Today, the answer: According to the Lower Merion Historical Society, the location is Parvin's Pharmacy, near the Bryn Mawr train station. The students in the photograph are from The Baldwin School.

Email brynmawr@patch.com to suggest a place in Bryn Mawr, Gladwyne, Villanova or Rosemont we can use in this feature at another time.

As a wonderful coincidence, The Baldwin School recently identified all of the students in this picture. Front and center toasting is Trina Twyeffort Greeme (Baldwin '54) who writes: "Then it was customary for us Baldwin girls to meet at Parvin's and have hamburgers and shakes on a weekend. Here we are celebrating our new blazers as Class of Purple." Trina also helped identify the other girls in the photo. They are Carol McClave Duncan ('54), Natalie Keen Van Bront ('54), Carol Littlepage Stefanik ('54), Trina Twyeffort Greene ('54), Dinny Lishor Biddle ('54) and Kitty Barclay Heilman ('54).
