The Rough Stage: Now in the rough, raw building stage - that describes Westaire subdivision, now teeming with construction activity in the city's northwest area. This is S. Circle Dr., a new street which starts at Miller Ave. west of Arbor Heights subdvision and curves past Haisley School to Maple Rd. That's Haisley School in the background. There are a part of 68 homes being built by the Prospect Hill Construction Co.

EXPANSION TO THE WEST: Graveled Maple Rd. (running diagonally across picture) may become a city street in the not-too-distant future. Growth to date can be seen in this Ann Arbor News aerial photograph. Home Realty Co.'s 100-home Arbor Heights subdivision No. 2 (at upper left) is under construction Fritz School to right of Maple Rd. (near center of picture) has already been taken into the city school district (June, 1949). The Ann Arbor Board of Education anticipating continued growth bought a ten-acre site last June for a proposed 18-20 room elementary school. The site includes open fields (left edge of picture) and part of wooded area. The fairgrounds (at upper right) may be a community recreation center if City Council plans to buy it are carried out.

Growing Northwest: The northwest area of Ann Arbor is partially seen in this aerial photo as an area of new homes. Haisley School (left, center) is flanked by the newly started Westaire subdivisions. The street leading from the school extends to Duncan St., which with its parallel Bruce St., constitutes Arbor Heights No. 2. The dirt area at the right is Arbor Heights No. 3. The original Arbor Heights is at the bottom left. Bruce and Duncan Sts., at their top portion, reach Miller Ave. Above this Martin Acres Nos. 1 and 2. These end at the pond near the top of the picture.
