Historic Aerials


Melissa sent this for Historic Aerials to me a few weeks ago and I thought it was pretty cool. It takes the whole Google Earth concept and goes back in time, its not fake. I’m assuming they somehow found an aerial view of the locations. According to the main page of the site only certain areas currently have Historical Aerial views. New Jersey is one of those areas. Put your address in and see where you live from today all the way back to 1931. Some of the images can be out of focus. But some of them give you an idea of where things were (or weren’t).

I put my parents town in and where the mall currently is back in the day its just a giant field. It was interesting. The map also allows you to explore by dragging the mouse around. Go nuts people!
