Today's postcard is a beautiful example of the late 1800s Victorian buildings that are unmatched by today's architecture despite the accomplishments of the last 120 years. Osborn Hall was designed by Bruce Price and built in 1888 at the corner of Chapel and College on the Yale University campus in New Haven Connecticut. It was used for classrooms but its demise in 1926 was due to complaints about streetcar noise and a growing dislike for dark Victorian buildings by the 1920s. It was replaced by Bingham Hall. This postcard is available in my Connecticut web page listings on my website at Moody's Postcards.
