Historic Aerial Photos of Redding and Georgetown, Connecticut- Jimmy Thalacker Collection  

A special thank you to Jim Thalacker of Big Pine Key, Florida for sending me these aerial photographs of Redding and Georgetown in the 1960's and 1970's.

These are all images that I have never seen before and many of them I cannot even describe. I have posted the images I could identify, more will be posted soon.

West Redding

West Redding showing a little more to the right

Chalburn Road looking east. The white in the upper right is not snow, it is clay and ash left over from a lime kiln used to make quicklime or cement. The main Limestone quarry is the gray area to the left (north) of the white debris field..

I think this is the Boys Scout Camp in West Redding

Great Pond

Redding Center

Jim's photos raised the question: what other aerial images of Redding might be out there to discover? I was able to find images of 1934 Redding/Georgetown and 2004 Redding/Georgetown. I'm sure there are more out there but for starters this is great stuff!
