Another Old Photograph of Faculty Row

Tobin Beck provided this old picture of Faculty Row. He scanned the picture from an old postcard.

Faculty Row at Lutheran Seminary (Concordia Teachers College, Concordia University) in Seward, Nebraska

The image has been uploaded to this Flickr webpage. Click on ALL SIZES to see the larger, original size.

The previously posted photographs of Faculty Row are here and here.

This postcard is labeled Faculty Row, Lutheran Seminary, Seward, Neb. The school was called a seminary until 1905, when it was renamed as a college, so the postcard was made before 1905.

The road running horizonally along the bottom of the picture is Columbia Avenue. The houses' front yards are much larger than they were on Faculty Lane.

Tobin commented about the photograph:

The Faculty Row picture is from the early 1900s, judging from the size of the trees in front of the houses. Also Miessler Hall, which was built in 1905, is not visible in the shot, which looks like it was taken from Columbia Avenue looking east.

If you look at the line of trees along the brick sidewalk going back toward Founders, you can see a white post. I'd guess that's about where the lobby of Weller is now.

(Mike: Look for the white post on the Flickr webpage.)
