    Great strides were made in aerial photography and photographic interpretation during the Second World War and recognizing how useful these skills could be in peacetime, the government tasked the RAF with a comprehensive survey of Britain, which they completed in 1947. This book compares these 1940s pictures with modern ones for over 90 locations in Dorset, demonstrating notable changes, particularly in urban expansion, as well as some spots that have remained remarkably unchanged.
