Description Negative tone photograph of Myers Hall on the Indiana University campus, 3.75" x 4.75", date unknown. This is a sideview of the building, which is partially covered with vines. The facade of the building is visible at right, with a large, four-pillared entrance chamber at center. On the building, three levels of numerous indentations of windows are visible. The upper two levels of the building (that are visible in the photo) are covered with vine. There is little detail in this area; the limestone is smoothed but not ornate. In the center of the photo there is a grassy area next to a sidewalk. This sidewalk leads up to the grand entrance of Myers Hall that juts out from the rest of the building. Four square columns (two visible in the photo) support a limestone entrance area that contains ornate reliefs between the columns in the top of the photo above large open archways. The side visible in the photo has (top) "PHYSIOLOGY" carved into it (backwards). Below are three figures with a clear classical influence.

In the corner between the building and where the entrance juts out there is a large evergreen shrub. In the left edge of the photo there is a large tree partially visible with no leaves on it. In the background of the photo there is another large limestone building partially visible.
