Vintage Snaps of Edwardian Slumber Party Girls

A set of hilarious snaps was found by Chris that shows crazy Edwardian slumber party girls.

“I’m not sure I completely understand the phenomenon but it appears that at the turn of the century (1900-1915) girls liked to get together in their petticoats, let their hair down and get goofy. Some of these Might also be freshman sorority girls in the throes of one of those infamous “baby parties” I’ve read about.”
