Wayne Wrights, an accomplished local photographer, provided this postcard of the Catawba College administration building in the early years of the school’s existence in Salisbury. Wrights found the postcard among those collected by his mother and father. He says it’s “A Natural Finish” Card made by Graycraft Card Co. of Danville, Va. The college moved to its present location off West Innes Street from Catawba County in 1925.
