Aerial view looking north toward the Historic Plaza District in Orange, California, ca. 1952. North Glassell Street is shown on the right side, from the bottom to the top. Sycamore Avenue runs left to right in the lower portion, by the Orange Union High School playing field, and the campus is above, fronting on North Glassell Street. (The high school was purchased by Chapman University in 1954) A block farther to the Plaza, the Orange Theatre may be seen as a large white building. The Plaza is in the upper right, at the junction of Glassell and Chapman Avenue. In the 300 block of East Chapman are the First Christian Church and the Old City Hall. Looking northeast from the City Hall is the Carnegie library building that once existed as the Orange Public Library. Photographic print B&w 26.5 x 33.4 cm.
