Church Hill from above (1972)

Bill Hartsock dropped off these two fascinating aerial shots of the area by Demementi studio from 1972.

Scroll around the larger versions to spot the differences… A few things that jump out:

  • the streets cutting through and around Jefferson Park
  • the Marshall Street Viaduct in all of its glory
  • a look at the missing houses on Carrington (above) and elsewhere
  • that store at 23rd and Jefferson (a grocery?)
