Aerial Maps

I have always loved maps. When I was a child, for some reason we had boxes and boxes of the National Geographic from the 1950's & 60's that had all of their maps with them. I would spend hours with them spread out, pouring over them and comparing.

Tonight I was inspired by my friend Catherine, with whom I was comparing an old address with Bing and Google screen-shots online via Facebook. We were using the shots to determine the address of a vintage photo I had sent to her earlier.

In a previous post I wrote about HistoricAerials.com, and so after tonight's adventure with Catherine I headed over and typed in that all too familiar address: 595 Circle Lane, Lake Forest, IL. Below are the screen shots that all too vividly show the demise and inevitable change to Villa Turicum.
