The Earliest Collection of Aerial Photographs

A full collection of aerial photographs from more than a hundred years ago has been recently displayed at the Library of Congress.  A late photographer named George R. Lawrence inherited a camera studio in 1893 and opened his new company with a catchy motto saying, “The Hitherto Impossible in Photography is Our Specialty.”  The Library of Congress has described Lawrence as particularly interested in aerial photography and started his creative journey in 1901 which was able to lead him to start shooting for aerial images taken thousands of feet above the ground.
