A Tichnor Brothers postcard of Colby College. This postcard shows the campus as it appeared in the mid-1950s. The women's side of campus is at the bottom of the image, noticeably separate from the rest of campus. The row of fraternity houses are located to the right of Miller Library, pictured center, while the male dormitories are in back of the library.

The caption reads, "Colby College Campus from the air, Waterville, Maine."
