Just a few land surveying photographs and images from the USGS I thought were interesting. I hope you enjoy them, too.

    I found some old usgs things in my barn when I was cleaning it out and was wondering if it is worth anything or what to do with it. If someone could contact me back with some information I would appreciate it. Thanks
