Caption: VIEW OF THE CAMPUS.

One feature of the School is the beauty of the grounds and their special adaptability to the purposes of a school. During the recreation periods the students spend many happy hours on the campus in playing croquet, tennis, ball and other games, or in quietly promenading, reading and chatting.

The photograph was taken looking south. Moving from left to right the buildings visible are: the Superintendent's Quarters, the Administration Building, the Guard House, the Academic Building, and the back of the Girls' Quarters. Male students are visible in the foreground where a tennis court is laid out, and females students can be seen in the background. 

This image appears in United States Indian School Carlisle, Penna (Carlisle, PA: The School, [1895?]), p. 6. 

A print of this image credited to photographer John H. Andrews is in Dickinson College Archives & Special Collections. However, it is possible that the image was originally taken by student photographer John Leslie, who is credited with many of the images in the pamphlet.
