Aerial Menasha 1976
This aerial photo from our Bicentennial Year shows the north channel of the Fox River from downtown all the way out to Little Lake Butte des Morts. Gilbert's and Banta hug Ahnaip Street towards the bottom of the photo. Other landmarks- James Island, Tayco Street Bridge, the water tower, John Strange.
In the upper right corner you can see the recently completed Roland Kampo Bridge which linked US 41 to Menasha across the lake. Otherwise known locally as "The Polish Connection," it was the first link in what eventually became the Tri-County Expressway.
