Image Caption: STS040-074-068 Lawton, Oklahoma, U.S.A. June 1991
Lawton, with a population of more than 82 000, is featured in this low-oblique, south-looking photograph. Located in southwest Oklahoma, Lawton is a major commercial and trade center for the surrounding area; major products of the area include cotton, wheat, and cattle. Other manufacturing interests include cement products, flour, dairy products, iron ore, and limestone. Also, oil wells are scattered throughout the region. Fort Sill, a U.S. Army Field Artillery Center, is located north of Lawton (small airfield is visible). Several manmade and natural features are recognizable in the photograph--the Wichita Mountains northwest of the city; Lake Lawtonka (bluish-gray body of water on the eastern edge of the Wichita Mountains), which supplies water to both Fort Sill and Lawton; the H. E. Bailey Turnpike north and south of Lawton; the major runway of Lawton Airport south of the city; and a small portion of the Red River south-southwest of the city.
