Thanks to a tweet from Martin Austermuhle
(back in March, but I've been busy), I've added a new batch of shots to my page of 1990s Photos of Near Southeast
It's really just one photo taken at helicopter height from the Carol M. Highsmith Archive
at the Library of Congress, but since it is available
as a 72 MB .TIF, I was able to zoom in for some looks back into the years right before I started my own photo journey. Judging by the landscape, the best I can say is that it was taken sometime between 1992 and 1999.
Go to the page
to see all of them (with explanations of what you're seeing), but see if you can figure out what you're looking at in these captionless sneak peeks:
They certainly trump the black and white overhead photos taken at about the same time that are also on my page
, though at least those have some views that the trees obscure in these new ones.
