This is the full aerial (a portion of which is described in 209.1186.5) taken by Olav Smedal on May 1, 1949. It is taken about eight blocks to the south of Lincoln Way (which bisects the upper third of the photo) and looks north toward the Iowa State College campus. Beach Avenue is the long street which begins in the bottom right of the photo and crosses Lincoln Way and curves around the campus. On the left, the north south street is Ash Avenue. In the immediate foreground are the beginnings of the development of Country Club Drive and all the streets to its south. The campus heating plant and smoke stack can be seen in the upper center of the photo. Pammel Court can be seen in the upper right. (See also: 182.1025.1-5 which has another description though it is the same aerial)
