My Grandparents moved to this property in the mid 1940's. My Grandmother moved out as a widow in the late 1970's. My father then took the farm over. I moved in from there in the mid nineties and live here still. The farm has changed much since then and only the barn, shed, garage and house remain. My Grandmother always said she wished my Grandfather would have purchased this photo in 1966 when they came to the house offering it as it showed the farm at its peak. But he was a practical man and passed on it. Now 45 years later in January 2011, My Grandmother will receive this portrait of her farm as she remembers it best. This will be her 90th Birthday and this will be the greatest gift ever. Thanks Vintage Aerial!

Thank you for the photograph of my grandparents farmstead in Indiana. I
think it is very nicely done and brings back many memories. This
particular photo is especially important to me because it is from the year
my grandfather died and the last year I farmed the property with my father.
The corn crib and barns were taken down several years later after the
property was sold outside the family. So, for me, the photo represents
history and nostalgia at the same time.

I think the purchase process and the website are very easy for the
customer. I am still a little amazed that I could find an aerial
photograph to purchase taken all the way back in 1978.

I would definitely recommend your service to anyone interested in tracing
their agricultural history and heritage back to a previous time.

This 1990's picture is of the farm my parents bought in 1952 and where I (we) grew up. The pond came in around '68, the pole barn about '80. Through many changes, their goal was to care for and improve the land. The farm has been subdivided now, but the main buildings remain. Many happy memories do, too. July Fourth weekend was a big deal until both parents passed.

I like the picture very much. The 1964 picture shows me the farm just as it was the last year I farmed it before going in the service. I see the crops I had plus the ground I had plowed or was plowing for wheat. I also see that some of the buildings are in poorer shape than I remembered. All in all, it brings back many memories.

Thank you
