[Postcard of Oxford's Oriel College]

Description

Postcard of Oxford's Oriel College in autumn. A large stone building with ornately arched windows towers over two men standing some distance from the entrance. Orange ivy covers the building on the right hand side, though it has been cut back around the windows. A wide set of stairs leads to the entryway, over which there are three stone statues residing in alcoves. On the right side, a large tower can be seen over the building's roofline. The back of the post card identifies it as a part of the Salmon Series, also noting that it was printed in England.
