Glover's Green River, Wyoming [gmap] birdseye is so low-angle that it's more in the tradition of panoramic postcard; but there are some nice details and touches.

A sleepy town on the Union Pacific, Green River was the first municipality to enact an ordinance to prohibit door-to-door solicitation. The ordinance, named after the town, was adopted by other cities, and has been argued in front of the Supreme Court on several occasions.
