A black and white printed postcard of the front of John O. Gross science hall. The building has a brick edifice and a triangular roof. The building also has paned windows and a columned entrance. On the right side of the building is a door that exits out on the grass, as well as a second story exit with a staircase leading down to the grass. In the distance behind the building are many trees. To the left of Gross Science Hall is an unidentified white two-story building, with a front porch. In the forefront of the image is a sidewalk with scrub palm trees. From the top of the image hang branches covered in Spanish moss. On the front of the image is printed along the bottom, "Bethune-Cookman College-- Daytona Beach, Florida." On the back of the postcard is printed, "Science Hall: Bethune-Cookman College, Daytona Beach, Florida--a co-educational Institution, founded by Mary McLeod Bethune. It has an enrollment of 600 students, 32 teachers and workers, and physical plant and equipment worth almost one million dollars. Teacher-training, junior college and industrial curricula. An institution built by faith, hardwork, courage, and cooperation." At the bottom left of the postcard is written "This side for correspondence," and on the right side of the postcard is written "This side for address." Written on pencil on the back is "early 1960s." The photographer of the image is unknown, but the printer of the postcard is Whitman's Phototypes of Canton, Pennsylvania.
