A good view of Harmon Field - late 1940s


Approaching Bluffton from the southeast, we continue our aerial coverage of the community. From previous photos we've established this series was taken in the late 1940s. Here's a view of the Harmon Field complex.

We'd like to point your attention to the bottom right of the photo. You'll see a side track on the Nickel Plate Railroad that no longer exists. You'll also see what appears to be a handcar on the track.

On the bottom left is the water works quarry, now filled in and known as Steinmetz Field.

It appears that a physical education class is taking palce in the Harmon Field practice area. Notice a ball diamond on the creek side of the football field.

We welcome additional observations from viewers.
