This photo from the Archives is labeled only "student group in basement." It appears to show a group of women posing with a small number of various woodworking tools. On the blackboard the words "Rules for Pharmacy" can be discerned. In the foreground a mannequin is dressed in a dress and bonnet and labeled "B. Beedle" (whom I couldn't find in a cursory search of city directories). The girls seem to be college age and it's tempting to assume they are Normal students, but it's impossible to know, as it is impossible to discern what they are doing in this room.
