From its grand edifices to its more modest buildings, the campus of Princeton University has changed greatly over its centuries-long development. The Princeton University Library Digital Collections group digitized well over 1000 images that tell the story of the campus via postcards of campus buildings, along with items from the town of Princeton and its surroundings. The items are divided into four separate series, including "Buildings", "Campus Ornamentation", and "Honoraria". The viewing tool for these images is quite user-friendly, and a toolbar allows visitors to view the items as a slideshow or in a grid layout. Each item is accompanied with a description. Visitors shouldn't miss the "Postcard Booklets" area, as they'll find a warm look at the campus activities of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
