Description:
A postcard sent to Reverend R. Layton in New Aberdeen, Cape Breton, from Rev. Dr. Robert Magill, Principal of Pine Hill from 1907-09.

Notes:
Today the building is the Atlantic School of Theology, 660 Francklyn Street, Halifax. It was founded in 1971 as an ecumenical school of theology and Christian ministry by the merger of three Canadian theology schools from the Anglican, Catholic and United churches.

Originally a mansion built in the 1870s for hardware businessman Edward Albro, the building was set in a nine-acre park that dipped sharply to the salt water of the Northwest Arm. In 1878 the Presbyterian Church bought it for $25,000 and, after adding another storey, named it Pine Hill College.

In 1926 the newly-formed United Church of Canada named it Pine Hill Divinity Hall. The previous year the Methodist, Congregationalist, and two-thirds of the Presbyterian Protestant churches in Canada had combined to form the United Church of Canada.
