Aerial view

image number:

P0023207

description:

This view was probably shot from the top of the smokestack at the old Power Plant that was located where the hotel portion of the Indiana Memorial Union is today (2018). It is also possible that it was shot by a low-flying airplane as the overall height seems higher than a smokestack. It could not have been shot from the tower of the IMU as the trees in the foreground are located where the first portion of the IMU was constructed. Thus, the image is shot well before 1932 (before construction of the IMU began) probably about 1927 (see image P0023397). Also, in this image, University Lutheran Church has not yet been built on the northwest corner of Seventh and Fess; it was completed in 1931. The view shows Dunn Meadow in the foreground, then Seventh Street. North Park Avenue can also be seen intersecting Seventh at lower right. The general view is to the northwest of Dunn Meadow. See also P0023396 and P0023397 as they were shot by the same person on probably the same day from the same vantage point.
