Aerial photography did not become common in central Arkansas until the establishment of Eberts Field, a World War I pilots’ school located in Lonoke (Lonoke County). This photo of the Arkansas State Capitol and surrounding area is believed to have been shot from a plane in the base’s Aerial Photography Section No. 32. The photo clearly shows how Capitol Street (center) does not properly line up with the entrance to the building, as had been intended.
