I thought aerial views served no purpose whatsoever?

Here’s a place South of town thats bears the land scars of a drive-in fan shape….

Address is: Sunland Ln and Gerkin Rd Bishop, CA 93514

I know there was an issue with putting aerial views of drive-ins on the site. My thinking is, even with a current address that could change. Plus, I have had good comments about the vintage aerials I have posted on theatres that I have submitted. Sure, most drive-ins are shaped the same, but it is the property surrounding the drive-in that is most interesting, from a historical point of view of the drive-in. Sometimes you can pick out features that you did not know about. ..My 2 cents worth!!
