History and the ingenuity of people are so fascinating!! I’m thankful for those who have been willing to try something new!This photograph shows the devastated city of San Francisco one month after the April 1906 earthquake. It’s high resolution, so you can enlarge it and look around.
Perhaps you’re wondering how photographer George R. Lawrence was able to get an aerial photograph in 1906? He managed it using KITES of all things.
From the deck of a ship in the San Francisco harbor, Lawrence used 17 kites linked with piano wire to lift, maneuver, and control his 49-pound camera 2,000 feet above the city. He used a spring-operated shutter that he triggered from the ground by current from a battery that activated a magnet coil in the camera to take the picture.
This photograph made Lawrence famous, even though some skeptics thought it was a fake simply because they didn’t believe the improbable feat of using a ship and kites to get this angle….
