Dear Mr. Beyke,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Aerial Photographs of the United States (documenting 1934 - 1957) in the Records of the Farm Service Agency (Record Group 145). The bulk of the records in this series have not been digitized. It is indexed by Indexes to Aerial Photographs of the United States in Record Group 145 that includes 1937 Indexes to Aerial Photography of Salt Lake County, Utah; 1946 Indexes to Aerial Photography of Salt Lake County, Utah; and 1953 Indexes to Aerial Photography of Salt Lake County, Utah; which have been digitized and are available online. For more information about these records and other aerial photography and map records in National Archives custody, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Cartographic (RDSC) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDSC. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
The Farm Service Agency Aerial Photography Field Office (APFO) retains custody of aerial photography records from the FSA and its predecessors from 1955 to the present. Their website provides information about their holdings and how to order imagery.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
