Aerial Camp Perry, Then and Now

So we took an old aerial photo of Camp Perry in 1920 (found in the CT State Archives) and matched it up with a satellite photo of Camp Perry taken in 2006 (from Google Earth). Pretty cool, eh? The perspective is slightly off on the two images so they don’t match perfectly, but they’re pretty darn close. REFRESH YOUR BROWSER IF THE PHOTO ISN’T DISPLAYING.
