One of the best "then and now" satellite photo websites, you gotta check it out!!!
I have recently become addicted to NETR Online • Historic Aerials. The website allows you to pull up a satellite or topo image of an area, and then also look at its older pictures/topo's. You can even few them side by side, with a neat slider to reveal the old and new! It will overlay street names and has a number of really cool features. Best of all its free! I think there is some premium services if you pay but I haven't looked into it.
I pull up old neighborhoods and see where old streets were that aren't there today, or old buildings, so I can go MDing. I was surprised to find parts of Louisiana with topo maps going back to mid 1800's! And I took these maps and looked at them compared to today's images, and found places where old Cemeteries were.....and now there are houses creepy.
Does anyone have any more great sites like this? I am a big fan of Google Earth, wish they would move some of this into there. I know Google Earth can do "Historic" but generally it only goes back to 1990 or so and its only Satellite not Topo.
The website historicaerials.com is a bit slow, and it uses Silverlight (yuck!), but its still very cool.

Found 18 locations to search, here is one.
I edited it with a screenshot of Google maps (more recent) and historic aerials.

I'm guessing that is the only aerial shot that is available for your area. What IS the deal?

Like Jerseyben said, its all thats available for that location. In some cases you can move the location just a few yards or miles in another direction and get more options. I have seen sites with satellite imagery going back to 1940 (south florida), yet only 2-3 topos. And then I have seen sites with 10+ topos going back to mid-1800's but only 1 satellite image (South Louisiana). So its a mixed bag.
Here is South Florida, I love that I can get satellite imagery usually for 1940, 1950, 1960, 1970, 1980 and newer..........it gives another dimension to picking your spots, and not so complicated that you have to go down to the library and dig through huge books to find these things out. Many times once I see something "interesting" I will turn to county plat records to even get some more info.

That site is great, I live in Iowa so the site covers it all. We recently found a emply lot near work that had a old schoolhouse on it years ago thanks to this site.
We will be working on this durning lunch breaks for a good month I am sure.
