I'm Getting Awfully Wise

Cornell Campus

Postcard Caption:
CORNELL UNIVERSITY: Bird's-Eye View of the Campus.
Hello, Mae, How's big? Having a grand time. This is a very good view of the campus but is not all of it. Will tell you lots when I see you. I'm getting awfully wise HaHa! Write! "Charlotte"
I took these pictures on the Cornell University campus last summer. Can you tell which buildings they are?

I feel much wiser now too. Beautiful postcard - I see the ivy has grown on the chapel over last 105 years!

Wonderful card and I think it's fun to see how things have changed (or not) over time. Wise is good! :D :D Happy PFF!

Gotta love this line. A friend of mine from another university wrote to me something along this lines too. I love that you can actually take photos of the current place and compare it with the old postcard!

Priceless vintage! And yes i can see which building you took in the photo. I love the church front covered with the climbing plant. That makes me wonder if that church/cathedral is still functioning.

Happy PFF!
