Geography of Gallows Hill from the Air

An old aerial view shows the relation of Gallows Hill to the rest of Salem better than any map could.

Centered on Gallows Hill Park the view is missing the half of Gallows Hill neighborhood to the west (left) of the park. Also missing is most of the Blubber Hollow area. How the water tower looms over the neighborhood, the city for that matter, is clear in the photo. The coal-fired power plant with its tall smokestacks, once the tallest structures in Salem, is gone now, replaced by the soon-to-be operational gas-fired Salem Harbor Footprint Power Station.
