@Andy: Sorry about the messed up post above, I must be getting fatigued.

The aerial images are downloaded through <Earth Explorer, a USGS website. It is not as “user friendly” as Google Earth or HistoricAerials.com, but the site offers the capability to download aerial maps for the entire country from the 1940s and up, for virtually any sized community.

The selection of aerials available on Google Earth and HistoricAerials.com is extreamly limiting. If you have the location of the drive-in and know approximate what years it was open (or visible) you should be able to obtain the image you want.

The site is free, there is no cost to download. You will need to become a registered user, again no cost is involved. Just make sure to set the search parameters so that you request “aerial photo single frames” and set the number of searches to at least 100, the default setting is only 10.

Any other questions I can be emailed at:
