This exhibit highlighted three air photo sets recently purchased by the UC Berkeley Library that cover San Francisco in the critical post-war years through 1958. Flown by Pacific Aerial Surveys, these large-scale images capture detailed snapshots of the rapidly developing city. We were joined by special guest Dave Ruiz, Imagery Analyst & Data Archivist at Quantum Spatial's Novato office, to learn about how these air photos were produced.
The following air photo flights cover San Francisco in the post-war years and are owned by UC Berkeley. All of them were flown by Pacific Aerial Surveys.
