If You Saw My Post on the Supposed 1850 Aerial Photo of the Plaza - Here is the Actual First Aerial Photo of Los Angeles in 1887

Here is my post on the 1850 photo which now appears to be a photo of a model that - possibly has been enhanced at the top a a real aerial photo take at a later date.  And here, from Kevin at LA OBSERVED  is the photo that was taken in 1887.

This may be the first aerial photo of LA

 The rest of the story is over at Nathan's LA Magazine column.  The question then is - could one of the 13 views have been used to enhance the 1850 model below?
And here is the other view again.  Does anyone see any resemblance between the top parts of the two photos?
