Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
English Heritage has launched a four year project aimed at conserving 95,000 of the oldest and most valuable photographs in the Aerofilms collection, those dating from 1919 to 1953. Once conserved, they’ll be scanned into digital format and made available online for everyone to see.
More than 15,000 images from one of the earliest and most significant collections of aerial photography of the UK have been made freely accessible online to the public for the first time.
The new Britain from Above website was launched in June 2012 with thousands of images online. The website will give users the opportunity to share and record memories of the places shown and to help English Heritage identify some of the locations and buildings.
The project will finish at the end of 2014.
