Description: Photograph of part of the North Texas State Normal College campus, showing (right) the Frame Building and (left) The Normal Building, c. 1903, set among trees. Photographic image mounted on gray card backing. Handwritten caption on lower margin of photograph: "North Texas State Normal as it was in 1902-3". Handwritten notation on right margin of photograph: "College of Vera Churchill". Reverse with handwritten notes: "From Alice Potter, Jan. 10, 1903, To Vera Churchill, North Texas State Normal School, Denton, Texas" and "84.12.1". Considered the first permanent and the second buildings built on campus, the Normal Building was constructed in 1891, and was struck by lightning and destroyed in 1907. The Frame Building was constructed in 1901 to provide extra space for an auditorium and classes, and was torn down about 1904 to make way for what would become known as the Old Main Building. The buildings were located facing Hickory Street, east of Avenue B.
