Google Earth 1949
Yesterday we featured 1999 satellite images of sites of current MVT new construction buildings. Overwhelmingly the sites were occupied by massive surface parking lots. That was not always the case.

Above is a low-res 1949
satellite aerial image of the Triangle that pre-dated the construction of I-395. While the black and white image very grainy you can see the land use included tightly packed buildings with absolutely no large parking lots. Be the first to like.
