Dates: 1965

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.

Scope and Contents

The collection contains 227 black and white aerial photo-maps of Lubbock County, Texas, taken during the fall of 1965. The scale used is l inch=502 feet. Each map represents a ground area of approximately three square miles and is mounted on heavy particle board, 31 × 31 inches. Three are paper copies, not the original image. Photos 1-267 are dated October 31, 1965, photos 269-498 are dated November 1, 1965, and photos 505-517 are dated 11-13-65.

The scales used are- 1:6034, 10.5 inches = 1 mile, 1 inch= 502 feet, 1 foot = 6034 feet.

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.
