This week, the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) and its sister organisation in Wales (RCAHMW) and English Heritage launched the Britain From Above website. It is a treasure trove of aerial photography from across Britain, with 5,000 images online already.
It features some of the oldest and most valuable images of the Aerofilms Collection, a unique and important archive of over 1 million aerial photographs taken between 1919 and 2006.It is particularly good for seeing some great images of industry such as shipbuilding, steel, locomotives and engineering. Such as this great one of the Harland and Wolff yard in Govan, 1947.
