We have obtained infrared images of a 10' by 40' region from 30 Dor south to N159. There are JHK images taken from the CTIO 1.5m telescope and L (3.5 micron) taken from the South Pole Infrared Explorer 0.6m telescope. All the images reach a limiting sensitivity > 13 mag. The images allow us to identify many objects with infrared excesses, which are plausibly high mass pre-main sequence objects, and all Carbon stars and supergiants. The distribution of these sources may trace the star formation history of the 30 Dor complex.
