Hopewell Boro Panoramic Aerials – April 2020
Aerial panoramas looking over Hopewell from six different points along the town, west to east. These are 180 degree views from side to side, with streets visible end to end, close-ups in the center area, and stretching off to the horizon in the distance. Most were shot at a height of 200 to 400 feet.
These images were shot by Jin Wu, professional photographer and licensed drone pilot – FotosfortheFuture.com.
Hopewell Boro Aerials – April 1932 – Lindbergh
Two aerial views of Hopewell Borough, photographed in March 1932, immediately after the Lindbergh kidnapping. Both are oblique views – One closer up on the downtown looking northwest over the area between East Broad and Greenwood, and the second looking northeast over the west side of town and into the distance.
Hopewell Boro From Mt. Rose – May 1932 – Lindbergh Path
Aerial image of Hopewell and the surrounding area, annotated with the route from the Lindbergh house to Mount Rose, where the child’s body was found (bottom center).
The view is facing north from Mt. Rose, with all the open fields around the area, and the streets and houses of the town in the distance. Most obvious on the south side of the town are the St. Michael’s property and the Elementary School (built in 1926).
Thanks to local historian Jim Davidson for the Lindbergh era images.
