AERIAL PHOTO ARCHIVE
YOU'RE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE!
TCRPC has an aerial photo archive consisting of about 400 images taken around the Tri-County region during the 1960s and '70s. Many of the area's municipalities are featured in the collection. And while in most cases their neighborhoods, roads and landmarks remain familiar after all these years, the overall impression is of an area very different from the one we know today.
So, we'd like to ask your help in identifying what's there -- as well as what came later -- by commenting on the photos in the form provided on each page.
To get you started, we've added very little information to the photos aside from the general location and perhaps a few landmarks for the sake of identity. Since this is an ongoing project, we'll continue to update the pages and descriptions as we hear from participants.
Feel free to share info such as street and road names, businesses, landmarks, farms, etc. Since the area has grown and changed so much over the past few decades, it's also useful and interesting to know what features would appear in the photos if they were taken today. TCRPC may know some of what's there now, but it'll more fun -- and much more enlightening -- to hear it from you. And you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you contributed to the project!
Thanks for your help, and enjoy!
