Seriously. I will pay $15 to the first person to correctly identify the location of this aerial photograph. All I know is that it's in the US and photo was taken in 1950. It's probably a landmark of some sort.

Couple rules. You must have a PayPal account (so I can pay you) and if you guess more than once, don't edit your previous posts. Posts that say "Last Edited by..." will not be counted.

I'm also looking for it, so if I find it first then I get to keep my money :)

Good luck.

o.O

Wow. Erm, good luck with that.

Where is the image from? Is that North-South oriented?

Well, GE timeslider was useless. Only image in the USA in 1950 is an image from 1937, which is in Colorado.

Ya, this is a tough one. I assume it's oriented North at the top.

It's probably from the USGS, so you won't find it in Google Earth.

The aerial turned out to be Olympic Park, in Utah.

How on Earth did you figure that out?

They ended up having to give us a hint for this one. The hint was "Somewhere in Utah". Took a while, but I found it.

I have a vendor that's running a contest. Every week they post a new historic aerial. First one to guess gets $25 Amazon gift card and entered into a raffle to win an iPad. So far I have won 5 of the 7 weeks :)

Four weeks left so I might be back for more help if there is another tough one. Most of the others have been much easier.
