I tried to get the same angle and direction using Google Earth. You can see the growth in this area. You can see in 1958, Perrine and Cutler Ridge were totally separate towns. Now it's all one massive built up area. Just a little more to the left, the Blimp Base, Richmond Naval Air Station, would been seen. MetroZoo is there now.

Also notice that the Turnpike, SR 821 isn't there. I remember it being constructed in 1972 when we moved out of Green Hills, which would be just to the right of the So. Miami Hgts arrow, all brush in 1958. Our house was one of the first in Green Hills, built in 1962. 17840 SW 111 Ave.
