Description

This aerial photograph looks south across Madison Wisconsin from above Lake Mendota. The high rise, modernist structures at the left of the image facilitate the Motor Vehicles Division, while the smoke stack and cluster of buildings to the right are part of Wisconsin’s Technical College System. Also visible is golf course at Blackhawk Country Club, established in 1921. Since this photograph was made, in 1964, the area has been further developed.
