View looking south along the length of the 1,476 ft. [450 m.] long hippodrome. On both the right (west) and left (east) side of the image the slopes outlining the hippodrome are visible. This is where the seating for 30,000 people was located.
The re-erected obelisk is clearly visible and beyond the hippodrome are three smokestacks from the electrical power plant at Hadera.
The hippodrome is now either used for agricultural purposes—note the stubble of the harvested crop.
