Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in, sometimes briefly.

Archive for the tag “Dexter West Nyack NY”

Sutton Hall, Millligan College

Sutton Hall, as it appeared in the early 60s.  The Unknown Collector acquired this card in 1962, which is probably around the time the picture was taken.  The caption on the back calls it “one of the newer buildings on the campus”.  Joyce Haynes took the photo.  Published by Haynes Publishing Company in Roanoke.  Printed by Dexter of West Nyack NY.
The building is much changed now.

The date in ink on the back: 6/4/1963.  That looks like a ’59 Cadillac on the right, so that’s probably in the ballpark.  Unfortunately, unless you were standing at the press and wrote the date on the back with the card in your hot little hand, it doesn’t mean a lot.  Cards hung around for years in drug stores, waiting for a wayward tourist or, in this case, a card collector to happen by.

This is another chrome, published by Haynes Distributing Company of Roanoke and printed by Dexter in West Nyack, NY.  Haynes was active in this area in the early 60s.

Joyce L. Haynes, naturally, took the photo.  She took a lot of pictures for the company.
