Vintage Aerial Website Features Local Properties


Have you ever visited www.vintageaerial.com? It’s a website that features aerial photos from the past, from all across the U.S. For St. Charles County, Missouri, there’s a significant collection of photos from 1985. In some areas, photos from a few other years are also available. Local resident, Mike Loyd, recently identified the general area where all 68 rolls of the 1985 photos from St. Charles County were taken. The website lets you comment on the photo, identify where it is, or enter a family memory. All photos are copyrighted, but you can purchase prints or a digital file if desired.

We appreciate Mike’s time and effort in creating the list below. Not every single property is included, but viewing the rolls is an interesting way to spend a winter afternoon/evening. How many places can you recognize? Can you find your house? Or your grandparent's house? Or a local church or business? Take a look and have some fun!
