In January, we officially opened our doors as Vintage Aerial. Since then, we’ve been working hard to fulfill the vision of helping people preserve their family history through our collection of over 25 million aerial photos of rural America.
Our efforts over the past five months have been geared towards making sure we have everything in place before we launch nation-wide. We’ve purposely kept news of our company at a minimum so that we have time to build an infrastructure that can handle a high level of traffic. These few months of testing have certainly confirmed our belief that we are creating a relevant way for people to connect to their past.
One of the ways that we connect people to their heritage is by connecting them to a librarian who will help them each step of the way. We’ve been training our librarians to not only find a single photo out of 25 million, but to also bring out the cherished memories and stories that are attached to each photo. The saying is true, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” but attach things like fond childhood memories or years of raising a family, and stories are limitless. As we grow, we will need even more librarians who share our passion in caring for and preserving the histories of each person we come in contact with.
We have much to share and we are so excited to serve families and business across the nation.
