There’s a new website that looks fascinating. It’s the digitised archive of aeriel photos of British towns by the Royal Commission. Here’s a gem from Britain from Above. Notice the allotments (!!) in Parc Gele at the bottom of the picture and the two tanks (grain, coal gas?) at the rear of Chapel Street. Add any other spots to the Comments below please.
I first discovered the site via this tweet by the Royal Commission: “BRITAIN FROM ABOVE rare & fragile aerial photos from Aerofims Collection conserved, digitised and now available online http://ow.ly/bNtsl”
If you register on the site you can bookmark and comment on favourite images.
This site’s a keeper.
Compare this image with the one on http://abergelepost.com/from-on-high.html
I’ll end this post with a link to more pictures of Abergele from Britain from Above.
