... I would like to see my home town when I was 10 (did they have areal photography then?)...
Well aerial photography has been going on since at least 1858 although not on the scale of Google / satellites of course.

"Credit for the first aerial photograph goes to French author and artist Felix Tournachon who used the nom de plume Nadar. He captured the first aerial photo from a balloon tethered over the Bievre Valley in 1858."
