Greg O. has forwarded this incredible interactive aerial survey of Manhattan issued by Fairchild Aerial Camera Corporation on August 4, 1921 and posted on the Library of Congress website.
According to the description, "this mosaic was made by assembling 100 aerial photographs taken while flying over the area at an altitude of 10,000 feet."
Below are several closeups of famous Manhattan landmarks from the aerial survey. Can you find others? Please comment below.
