Description

A black and white image of the exterior of Thomas White Hall on the grounds of Bethune-Cookman University. The building, in the background of the image, is two stories, with paned windows which are opened. The building has a triangular roof with a brick exterior. The entrance is a columned entranceway, with steps leading to the front door. The entrance has a sign reading "White Hall" hanging above it. Two large trees can be seen to the right and left of the building, with benches for sitting at their bases. Just to the right of the left most tree, a young female student in a school uniform can be seen walking toward White Hall. In the foreground of the image is a white pergola and the trunk of a large tree. The pergola is attached to a fence, which has brick columns and dowels fencing in the school yard. Standing in front of White Hall is a flagpole, and just to the left of it, another skinny trunk of a tree. Looking closely at this tree trunk, one can see two metal pieces attached to the side of it, through which the wires of a telegraph or electricity line run through. The image is actually two halves, which have been glued together on the back. On the back of the image is the stamp of the photographer, which is partially legible. It includes information about the image, such as screen, wide, style, mount, and so forth. Written in pencil on the back of the image are also various notes about the size. They read, ""Mr. Alin Campbell; 1/4 in. thickness; arch - 1 and 1/8 inches center to center; Pergola - 1 and 15/16 inches from center post to center post.""
