University of Chicago Campus

UC Campus

Published by Max Rigot Selling Co., Chicago

Postcard Caption:
CAMPUS, UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO. The University of Chicago is located on the South Side, 7 miles from the business center, facing the Midway Plaisance, the campus now covering an area of 95 acres. Hutchinson Hall and Tower is a reproduction of the beautiful Christ Church Hall at Oxford, England. It is used as a men's dining hall, the whole building being one room, 150 by 40 feet, and 50 feet high.
I'm glad we didn't have to dress so formally when I went to school at UC!

Thanks to the Best Hearts are Crunchy for hosting Postcard Friendship Friday!
