1991 Aerial Shot of Magic Landing

I know that many people have seen Magic Landing in its current state on Google Earth. Well, I found a website called Terraserver. They have a 1991 aerial shot of Magic Landing and the rest of El Paso. It appears that the ferris wheel is still standing in the picture. I could be wrong though. You can check out Terraserver at the link below.

Hello,I used to live in the area where Magic Landing still stands(the Socorro and Horizon City area)....The ferris wheel was removed about 6 years ago and the buildings still remain on the property, the parking lot however has been bought and taken over by a Trucking company... there is a large fence surrounding the front of the property, but the back as, as you can see, has your basic chainlink fence...I would pass by there all the time, but I never got up the courage to check it's a shame that young people don't respect the value of our past:(
