The photo above, taken on February 8, 1928, looks southwest and shows the future location of Randolph Field as just a patchwork of farms. Schertz is in the foreground with Cibolo Creek running right to left, about a third of the way up from the bottom of the photo. Seguin Road (now Farm Road 78) runs at an angle through Schertz and parallels the railroad track. What will become Farm Road 1518 winds along the far bank of the Cibolo. Converse is in the hazy distance. The future site of Universal City is in the angle between the railroad and Cibolo Creek at the middle right. What will become East Aviation is a farm road that ends a few hundred yards from the creek. (USAF Photograph)
