This Day in Information (Extra): First Aerial Photograph

Today in 1860, James Wallace Black made the first successful aerial photographs in the United States. He photographed Boston from a hot-air balloon at 1,200 feet. One good print resulted, which the photographer entitled “Boston as the Eagle and the Wild Goose See It.”
