Sheffield, England

I love the bright tone of this postcard

It shows the Edgar Allen Building, at the University of Sheffield in South Yorkshire - England

The University of Sheffield's magnificent turreted Edgar Allen Building, viewed from Weston Park. Designed by the architect Mitchell Gibbs, it was opened by the Prince of Wales (later King George v) in 1909. The cost was some £10,000, generously paid for by the local steelmaker Edgar Allen.

heh, and i actually initially thought it may be somehow related to Edgar Allan Poe....
