University Archives & Special Collections, A-888. (Patrick Hayes)

Early Campus Postcard

This campus postcard from circa 1912 features five recently completed buildings.

The date would put it in what is commonly known as the Golden Age of postcards – 1902-1915. All the images were taken from the west. Reading clockwise the buildings are the Peter MacKinnon Building, two views of Saskatchewan Hall, the Main Barn, the Stock Pavilion (demolished in 1986) and Emanuel College.  

The University Archives has an extensive collection of U of S postcards up to the 1990s. They come in a variety of formats, including hand tinted, sepia, view books, portrait and occasional real photograph reproductions and aerial views.
