Didn't see this on here and figured some forum members might get a kick out of this if they haven't seen something like this in the past.
Here's the stitching of 3 high-resolution aerial photographs of Groom Lake, the Papoose Range, and part of Papoose Lake from 24 February 1954. I didn't spend long on the stitching, so there is a noticeable doubling of a small part of the papoose range.

Here's a thumbnail, click on it for the full resolution (3112x4492).

Here are the originals (they are very large, 17.4 MB each):

Bonus imagery:
Papoose Lake - 20 June 1981

Papoose Lake - 1 July 1983

Groom Lake Road/NTS around Station 700 - 18 August 1998

There are really interesting and contrast heavily with the Satellite imagery of Area 51 today.

So many thing's to suggest underground facilities.

A lot of work has gone on in that area since '54. And that's only visible on the surface, I can't imagine what kind of thing's they have built underground.

These images are quality though, good find!
