Originally set up in 1919, Aerofilms Ltd was taken into the Air Ministry’s reconnaissance unit during the war and for the rest of the century carried out commercial operations photographing Britain’s landmarks from above. Selecting from an archive of over a million items and accompanied by historical notes, this portfolio displays images of ports and harbours, famous ships, Naval bases, shipyards, and seaside leisure facilities, from the Mauretania at Southampton in the 1930s to London’s regenerated docklands in the 1990s.
