Descriptive Summary

Creator Texas Tech University
Title: Aerial photo-maps, Lubbock County, Texas,
Dates: 1965

Collection # M 1.1
Quantity: 227 photographs
Language English.
Repository: Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library, Texas Tech University

Biographical Sketch

The materials were donated by the Geosciences department of Texas Tech University. These photos may be used to determine land use in 1965, urban development such as the construction of Loop 289, and in conjunction with information from other time periods to detect changes in land use and land cover over a period of time either prior to or post 1965. They are black and white and were taken in the fall after much of the vegetation has gone dormant for winter. Therefore use of these photos to determine vegetative cover will be limited. These photos are fairly large scale (1 inch = 502 feet). Among the smallest objects that can be resolved are buildings, houses, vehicles, and individual trees. A magnifier should be used by the researcher interested in objects of this size.

The itemized image list includes the photo number, date of the photo, and notes highlighting features and land use. These descriptions are not intended as an exhaustive review of individual photographs, but may be of use to the researcher in locating areas of interest.
An index-map of Lubbock County includes line of flight, direction of flight and sequence of photographs. Some photographs are outlined on this index-map to show precise location of photo. Where only a photo number is shown, approximate location of photograph is indicated. Where no number is shown, the location of photos can be projected using the information located in the margins of the index-map.
Photo numbers printed on the individual photographs are always located in the Northwest corner of the photograph. Generally, the photographs have approximately one-third overlap on the line of flight axis, and some overlap occurs across flight lines. Flight lines alternate between East to West and West to East. Each line of flight contains approximately 15 photographs. Photo numbers within flight lines increase from North to South.
