If you are in a hurry, bookmark this page for later.  These are large images and may take several minutes to load.

Microsoft's TerraServer claims to be the world's largest database. Microsoft,   along with the USGS, has assembled a photographic aerial map of much of the planet.  The following links will open images of Old Louisville and Louisville from the river to the Downs.   These images were assembled from several TerraServer images (the overview from 32 tiles, all Old Louisville from 160), and text labels were added for orientation. They are in a fairly low resolution to keep the load time to a sane level on your browser.  If you would like the high resolution versions, you may download them from the appropriate links below.
