A 1906 view from the observation deck of the monument on the circle, showing the post office before the northern side was enclosed. Bummer that all that plaza and grass fronting Ohio had to make way for more traffic lanes. Must’ve been fun to stroll by this when it was new…

    What a cool picture! University Park looks like a little forest. Do note that the tic-tac-toe grid plaza and lawn are still in front of the courthouse on Ohio, but that little strip of grass along Meridian has been removed to make the sidewalk wider. Cf:,-86.1571999,200m/data=!3m1!1e3
