Britain from the air 1919 - 1953

From the BBC come this look at aerial photographs in the Aerofilms Collection taken between 1919 and 1953 now being conserved and digitised by English Heritage and the Royal Commissions on the Ancient and Historical Monuments for Scotland and Wales.

The images can be accessed at http://www.britainfromabove.org.uk/ but the site was swamped when I tried.

Thank you for your daily tips, I just signed on to "Britain from the air," hope to see grandparents' villages and add photos to family notes.

My dad was there in WWII. I'm looking forward to seeing some of the places he was stationed and where he visited. My only regret is he can't tell me what I'll be seeing!
