New York: Columbia University

Text auf der Rückseite: "SETH LOW LIBRARY, Columbia University, the gift of President Low, was opened for use in 1897. The architectural style, from plans by McKim, Mead & White, is classical based on Roman precedents but with many suggestions of Greek refinements in detail. Placed strategically on the brow of the hill at Morningside Heights, it holds a commanding position and is the focal point of the general campus layout. Built at an approximately cost of $750,000.00, it has an estimated capacity of 1,500,000 volumes." Die Karte ist 1935 gelaufen.
