Bird's-Eye View of Hobart High School circa 1910

Here's a photo from the 1910 Aurora yearbook showing the school building as viewed from, I believe, the top of the water tower on New Street. Some brave photographer…

What really interests me about this photo is not the school but the background — so many trees, so few houses! To some extent, I suppose, the houses are just hiding under the trees. But seeing this picture makes it easier for me imagine a barn on Water Street.

(Speaking of climbing towers, here is an interesting helmet-cam video of the climb to the top of a 1,768-foot tower. Vertigo warning!)
