Aerial picture of the University of Kentucky campus during the 1945-46 school year. Downtown Lexington visible in background. South Limestone is seen running diagonally up from the bottom of the photo, while Rose Street moves vertically up the image. In between the two streets on campus is Memorial Hall, and Stoll Field. Directly behind Stoll Field is the future site of Memorial Coliseum, which started to be built shorty after this picture. Further in the background, at about exactly the middle of the image, is downtown Lexington, featuring  Lexington’s first skyscraper, the First National Building. Herald-Leader archive photo

An aerial picture of the University of Kentucky campus during the 1945-46 school year. Downtown Lexington visible in background. South Limestone is seen running diagonally up from the bottom of the photo, while Rose Street moves vertically up the image. Between the two streets on campus are Memorial Hall and Stoll Field. Directly behind Stoll Field is the future site of Memorial Coliseum, which was under construction shortly after this picture.
