Most, if not all, of the panorama views below, shot from an Aeromarine Model 75 (most likely the Santa Maria),
are from the eastern Great Lakes/Canada region. The time is early summer of 1921.

Panorama view from an Aeromarine Model 75<
According to a timetable from 1922, this view is from Florida.
However, we doubt that this is correct, since all other panorama views were taken around the St. Lawrence Seaway,
the eastern Great Lakes and northern New York, and at the same time in the summer of 1921.
