Default Quake of '64

Does anyone have pictures they can post of the spit before the '64 quake?

I've got some old ones from Portage area but nothing of the Homer spit. I don't think things changed too much on the spit during the earthquake.

The way I hear it, the spit used to be grass covered and after the quake, it dropped 6+ feet.

There are some great websites out there with extensive pictures and geologic data from the whole state.

I was there in Anchorage and it was my birthday. Some party.

When you arrive in Alaska, go to Anchorage and go to Earthquake Park. Information there posted and a beautiful skyline.

I know you are searching for photos before the quake hit...but this site is the mother-lode of photos after the quake in areas affected. There are a few comparison shots of different areas - before and after.
