29: Aerial view of downtown Chandler


    Description: Taken in 1923, this photograph looks north towards Mesa. It shows Doctor Chandler's plan to echo the developement of Pasadena coming to fruition. At the center of this image is Chandler's first park, a lush area full of trees. Canals and streets were also lined with trees, creating cool canopies over sidewalks and attractive vistas. The bustling business district had begun to surround the park. The San Marcos is visible on the left, identifiable from other buildings by its landscaped grounds. Bashas’ first Chandler store, a dry goods business, is the black-roofed structure in the lower right corner.
