Photograph of exterior of the North College, University of California at Berkeley, ca.1879. In the foreground, an open clearing covered in grass and flowers can be seen. In the background at center, the large building can be seen. Two sets of stairs are visible leading to the front entrances. Large columns are visible, supporting the large balcony above. The building consists of at least four stories with rows of arched windows lining each floor. At the top of the building, a picketed fence lines the border of the roof. Beyond the building, large mountains can be seen.
