If you think students back in the day didn't have fun, think again. This week’s photograph is of a Canterbury University student in fancy dress for the carnival-like capping day procession of 1919. This particular character and the procession were reported on in this press article, published 21st June 1919. We’d love to see your own fancy dress photos!
