Photograph of a men and women standing and sitting around the front stairs of the Normal Building, North Texas State Normal College, about 1904 or 1905. The large group includes people looking out of windows and others sitting in front of the steps on the ground. Photographic print mounted on card backing with handwritten notes on reverse: "About 1904 or 5", "1104" and list of 1904 faculty: "Dr. Bruce, Hauslein, Long, L.D. Borden, J.A. Sanders, M. Anne Moore, Miss Boylan" The Normal Building was built as the first permanent building on the NT campus, and the wooden awning/porch visible in the photograph was installed between 1897 and 1902. The Normal Building was stuck by lightning and burned down in 1907. Tentatively identified are: Dr. Hauslein [3rd from left, standing]; J. A. Sanders [seated, in front]; and W.H. Bruce [standing directly behind seated man at front].

The 39 men and women stand or sit in rows on the stairs looking at the camera. Photographic image mounted on card backing. Handwritten notes on reverse: "Class of Teachers College - Denton Tex.", "Gift of Mrs. Adkinson[?]", and - partly defaced - "From Mrs. Bat[illegible] Atkins[?] 200 Ave D Denton". Image is undated, but must have been taken between 1904 when the Main building was constructed as the second permanent building on the NT campus, and 1923 when it was torn down. Most likely taken ca. 1904.
