London Docks 1958 EAW071687

LONDON DOCKS, Southwark. Aerial photograph of Greenland Dock, Rotherhithe in June 1958. Also showing South Dock, the River Thames and the entrance to the Millwall Outer Dock (on the Isle of Dogs). Freighters are unloading into barges and butties. The dock was mostly used for Baltic shipping, notably whaling and timber. Greenland Dock is the oldest of London's riverside docks, originally laid out in 1695 to refit East Indiamen. The commercial docks closed in 1970, and the warehouses have now been replaced by Docklands residential developments (Swedish Quay, Baltic Quay and Brunswick Quay). Aerofilms Collection (see Links)

Milton Keynes 18693_02

Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire. One of the key features of Milton Keynes' urban layout is the distinctive grid pattern of its main transport routes. With main routes intersecting approximately every one kilometre, the grid pattern allowed planners to move away from congestion associated with traditional radial town plans. Initially roads were given numbers or letters which signified vertical (north-south) or horizontal (east-west) routes. All have since been named. Photographed in February 2000

Aerial photography 1919 AFL03_aerofilms_c12930

"Wills, Shaw and Friese-Greene Ready to Film". A publicity shot for the foundation of the Aerofilms aerial photography company taken at the London Aerodrome, Hendon. Francis Lewis Wills was a former Royal Naval Air Service Observer and co-founder of Aerofilms. Claude Friese-Greene, holding the cine-camera, was technical director for Aerofilms in its early days, but is best known as a pioneering cinematographer. We know very little about Shaw, the pilot, probably an AirCo employee. K-109 was a biplane built and owned by AirCo - in 1920 the company was taken over by De Haviland and this model became the DH9b.
