South University and East University panorama

South University and East University panorama

In the 1898 panorama above, campus buildings had not yet reached this corner. The School of Engineering and its shops can be seen in the distance. Cousins and Hall greenhouses and florist shop occupied most of the first block across South University, which was then an unpaved boulevard.Houses lined the avenues surrounding campus as well as both sides of South University all the way to Washtenaw Avenue.
