NM21-765-047 Milwaukee, Wisconsin, U.S.A. Winter 1995-1996
Milwaukee, the largest city in Wisconsin, is visible in this southwest-looking, low-oblique photograph. Located where the Milwaukee, Menomonee, and Kinnickinnic Rivers enter Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is a port of entry for heavy cargo via the Saint Lawrence Seaway. The city, a major center of German immigration in the last half of the 1800s, is one of the world's leading manufacturers of diesel and gasoline engines, tractors, and beer. The runways of Billy Mitchell International Airport are discernible south of the city (upper left). Numerous parks and recreational areas dot much of the shoreline north of the city.
