Repository: New York State Archives
Description: This series consists of photographic negatives and positive prints of low-altitude, oblique aerial views of a variety of New York State sites, produced by the New York office of Fairchild Aerial Surveys (a commercial firm) during the years 1946-1949, 1951, and 1957. The reason the photography was done is not known, but the firm's work was used to produce maps for the U.S. Geological Survey, among others. Images depict locations statewide, with the New York City metropolitan area predominating.
