description:

Top of this image is north. This image shows the original site of Indiana University in the block between Second & First Streets, and Walnut Avenue and Morton Street. This is now (2019) the site of Kroger grocery store, Wendy's Hamburgers, Seminary Park, the U.S. Post Office (formerly Ponderosa Steakhouse), ACE Pawn Shop, Bloomington Car Wash Center, and Rally's Hamburgers. Second street is at the top of the photo, Walnut at right, First at bottom, and Morton at left. College Avenue is at top center. The large nearly square building at upper left is the old Bloomington High School Gymnasium. The building just to the lower right of that is the First University Building (a.k.a. Old College Building) built in 1855. The building just to the lower right of that is Bloomington High School built in 1914. This image is a cropped version of image number 61-140 from the City of Bloomington Aerial Photographs found on the Indiana Spatial Data Portal website. (NOTE: the original images are housed with the Bloomington City Engineers.)
