Of course, the view is easily recognizable with Westhampton Lake (complete with a swim platform) in the center and a variety of structures that still stand today dotting the picturesque campus. North Court (finished in 1911) appears on the left side of the image in the Campus' southwest corner and was at the time named the 'Westhampton College Building.' Across the lake from North Court stands Thomas Hall, completed in 1913 and named after James Thomas, Jr., a Richmond Tobbaconist. Thomas was one of Richmond's first millionaires and a member of the Richmond College board of trustees at the time. Moving clockwise, Jeter Hall is the next building to the north of the lake. Jeter was the first dormitory completed (1913) and was appropriately labeled 'Dormitory no. 1' at the time. Additionally, it was the first to don the school's patented "Collegiate Gothic" style and has served as a template for most of the campus' other construction projects though the years. The Stadium (later First Market Field) lies between Jeter and the refectory, which was re-named Sarah Brunet Memorial Hall in 1924 after the generous benefactor whose name continues to reside on the building today. Ryland Hall sits to the east, next to the proposed Chapel. This academic building was completed in 1914 and named for Robert Ryland, Richmond College's first president, and his family, who stayed closely involved with the University for generations. Finally, the Steam Power Plant (1914) sits on the bottom right of the painting, adjacent to a train car full of coal. The Plant continues to provide hot water and steam for the campus' HV/AC systems today.
