Their website makes it clear that the eight-person team at Vintage Aerial loves preserving the heritage of rural America and sharing it with anyone and everyone who cares. They’ve built a website of an amazing 18 million images and growing that anyone can access. There are also photo mysteries on the site that you might be able to solve. Identify one homestead and it unlocks the rest on the roll of film. Anyone can sign up for an account, browse the collection, and order prints. Beware though…once you start looking at these pictures, it’s hard to stop. My guests are Lance Roper of Customer Engagement and Fritz Beyers, President, and CEO. We talk about how the company started and its plans for the future. Hint: More scanning and adding more photos is part of it.
