Take a look at this photo our historical photo blog, KYPhotoArchive.com, pulled from our archives. It shows downtown Lexington in January 1975.

Near the bottom is the Lexington Center and Rupp Arena construction. What would later become Triangle Park is just to the left and above the construction. Vine Street is visible up the middle of the photo. Just to the right of that is High Street, running from the bottom to the top of the picture.

Here is another view of Rupp Arena construction from a couple of months earlier in November, 1974.
