One of the Aerial views from the mid-1920s

Here is a picture of the Main Building from the air. It was taken after 1923 if you note the bell on the roof. This image is also from a Theologue since I have not been able to locate the original photos and I have no idea who might have been taking aerial photos in the 1920s. From talking to a local photographer, as well as the Broome County Historian, photographers in planes would travel around the area and sell photos taken from planes since it was such a new field. The person that took the photo might have been from New York City or Philadelphia. This is one of the shots from the group of aerial views that was in many Theologues. Maybe in the future the photos or their negatives will turn up.
