Before the invention of the airplane, someone wanting a "birdseye" view of the village had to climb to the top of a nearby hill and hope for an open view. We have posted some of these birdseye views in prior post. After planes became available, it was easier to get a real birdseye or aerial view. Here are some we have found.
Above- This was taken in 1938, just after the school had been completed.
Above- We are likely to date this one around 1947. The new concrete highway is being poured on the straightened Rochester Street.
Above and Below- These two are very close in date, yet the one below shows work on the new firehouse and village offices.If memory serves me, a aerial was used as the inside cover of one of the yearbooks.
Above- Bill Hecht sent along this one from 2005.
Above- And from way up high in 1938, a crop of a high attitude military photo.
