150 years ago on Oct'13, 1860, James Wallace Black shot the earliest still-existing aerial photograph in the U.S. He took the picture from a hot air balloon suspended above Boston Common, and the result, titled "Boston as the Eagle and Wild Goose See It," is truly beautiful. The photo is part of the archive at venerable Boston Public Library, along with other important historical images of Boston area, and is particularly significant because most of the area visible in the photo was destroyed by the Great Fire of 1872.

In coincidence, Oct'13th is also the 1s birthday of Building Maker, which's now availabe in the 101 cities around the world to 3D modelers.
