Aerial photography of Great Smoky Mountains, NC-TN
Thanks for your investigation on this.
I am interested in purchasing the aerial indexes.
Is there an earlier aerial photo index for 1933 – 1943 photos?
The reason I ask is I am not interested in "complete" aerial coverage from the 1950s –
This is because I wish to obtain the earliest images possible (1933 – 1943), which as you likely discovered are not comprehensive.
For example I know Blount and Sevier County in Tennessee have early series photos from the 30s and 40s, but I don’t think Cocke County does.
So, I would not want to buy the 4 sheets for Cocke County since I know there are no photos available.
Can you price me for the index of the 8 sheets from Blount and Sevier County?
If I learn that the N.C. Counties have earlier survey photos than the 50s – is the price pretty much set (1 sheet increases cost by 1 unit of fee) that I can extrapolate the cost, or would I need a new estimate from you?
I’m a student so I have the time to travel to Maryland – just need to determine if it’d be more cost effective for me to order the indexes rather than drive or take a bus up.
