Look Familiar???

It’s that time of year when all over campus you see students running around in caps and gowns snapping photographs of there final moments as UCD students.  Over the years the commencement ceremony has taken place in many different locations and times. This weeks photograph from the University Archives is of a commencement circa 1959 and looks to be right in front of what is now the 24 hour reading room. What college’s commencement was this? Can you identify any of the people in this photograph? Were ceremony’s broken up by individual colleges or was there just one large commencement ceremony? How long was this a commencement location? Did you or anyone you know receive their degree in this location? Any stories or memories from your own graduation are welcome so please share!
