Of course my primary interest in this card was the subject - University of Chicago. Mandel Hall is an auditorium where we went to some events. (I think the Barenaked Ladies performed there but can't quite remember. I also believe we saw a stand-up comic there as well.) The hall was built in the early 1900s, a gift from Leon Mandel (who operated Mandel Brothers department store with his siblings).
