CAMDEN NJ - AERIAL IMAGES

CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY

AERIAL IMAGES OF CAMDEN

Over the years many aerial photographs have been taken of Camden. Many were taken for commercial purposes, while others, specifically those taken by Camden Fire Department photographer Bob Bartosz, were made simply for the purpose of chronicling changes occurring in the city. Still others were taken from fixed elevation such as City Hall, by Bob Bartosz and other photographers down through the years. Dave Boone, best known for his tugboat paintings, and Paul Huber have also furnished images seen here. 

The photographs will be presented hear in more or less chronological order. Every photo will, when clicked, on display an enlarged version, and many of the pictures offer on or more "supersized" views.

Needless to say, new images are ALWAYS welcome!
