Landmark Photography research

This is the Twin Drive-In in Independence, Eastern Jackson County, Missouri. It is the only surviving Drive-In in Jackson County. I took this picture in October of this year.

Here's the crux of photographing a Landmark in an area. People will remember it. It's part of the social fabric of the town and of people's lives. So if you're picture is going to be seen, make sure you do your homework. Know the history of the subject of your photo. It was pretty easy to find that the Twin opened on November, 24, 1965. But I looked further and found this gem. Keep digging, make sure your audience is being given factual information and you never know what you might find.
