Aerial view

image number:

P0023397

description:

This view was probably shot from the top of the smokestack at the old Power Plant that used to be located where the hotel portion of the Indiana Memorial Union is today (2015). The addition to Franklin Hall can be seen here. It was completed in 1926 so, this photo was probably shot about 1927.

The view shows Dunn Meadow at lower right, then, at lower left Maxwell Hall with The Student Building above that. The general view is toward the west with the dome of the Monroe County Courthouse just above and to the left of the center of the image.

See also P0023207 and P0023396 as they were shot by the same person on probably the same day from the same vantage point.
