Sterling Memorial Library, Yale

In the fourth Indiana Jones movie Indy drives his motorcycle through the doors of this library, done up as the Marshall College library.  The university insisted on an 80 foot tunnel being built to protect the library from motorcycle fumes.  A number of the buildings in this ancient university underwent transformations in order to appear in "The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull".

  1. I love the movies and think it was great to include such a place as this.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
