These two aerial photographs depict Bruno Hauptmann's upper Bronx home and St. Raymond's Cemetery, where the Lindbergh ransom money was delivered. Less than two miles separate the two locations. The New York Evening Journal was the first newspaper to regularly team a reporter with a photographer on major stories. A complete in-house lab and photographic technicians meant that that photojournalists could have images ready for print in 90 minutes.
