These married couples living in the Enchanted Cottages were photographed in 1946, soon after the units were erected.

Along with the wooden attached units, there were also a couple of trailers on the East Quad to help with the overflow. Two of the slideshow photos show the woodgrain walls and efficiency kitchens in those rolling bungalows. Carrying babies and carrying blocks of ice for the fridge were among the extra chores for these students who were also carrying full course loads.
