Description Painted print of GCVI. Painting shows the front of the building which is grey and tall. The right wing of the building goes up 4 floors and there are 4 windows on each level with the exception of the top level where it peaks there is one. The building continues towards the left with a lower section of the building that appears to be a hallway and the an entrance. Front there it is connected to a tall tower. The rest of the building is hidden by a tree for the most part. There is a small boy at the forefront of the picture standing next to a tree with bare branches. There are other people close to the building as well. The people next to the structure give a good impression of the scale of the building and just how large it really is.
The back of the postcard has a message which says, "Dear Mable (?) thought you would be pleased with this card. Regards to all, ---" The signature is not discernible. In general the writing is difficult to read.
