Normal’s West Side Aerial, c. 1954

Aerial view of Normal, 1954.

Wow, how the Town of Normal has changed since 1954!
If you’re having trouble getting your bearings, the view is to the northeast. “A” indicates the community of Towanda; “B” Illinois State Normal University Farm; “C” ISNU campus; “D” Normal Community High School; “E” Oakdale Elementary School; “F” the u-shaped development off S. Grove St. comprised of David Dr., Daisy Lane, and Julienne Dr.; and “H” Holy Cross Cemetery.
What else do you spy in this fabulous mid-century bird’s eye view of Normal?
