Claiborne Hill Aerial Photographs

This photo shows Claiborne Hill intersection, from the east looking towards Covington, in 1957 during the construction of the overpass over the Bogue Falaya River. That was 59 years ago. Click on the image for a closer look.

Here's an aerial photograph of Claiborne Hill intersection in 1975, forty-one years ago. The first image below is the photograph with no labels, and the second photograph is the same, but with labels showing where things used to be and also what is there today. To see a larger image, click on the picture. 

Here is a side-by-side comparison with a more recent Google Maps aerial photo.

Thanks to Renee Kientz with the St. Tammany Parish Tourist and Convention Commission for help in finding this and other photographs I took back in 1975.
