For a reference, here is a preliminary crop of some locations:
The green highlight is the future path of Interstate 75 north/south.
The yellow swatch is the future location of my house. According to the property deed, my house was built in 1920. So either my deed is wrong, or
this photo is incorrectly dated at being 1922. Some of the landmarks do still exist and I will document them in the near future.
The actual single runway ran in a general north/south direction. Depending on the prevailing winds, takeoffs and approaches would have flew over a
rather large vacant area, which is now a city owned ballpark and recreational area or over a now paved trucking depot. I will probably try my luck
searching the city parks for artifacts. More photos to come.
A google maps version of the 1920's photo today:
