Six aerial photographs (five of them oblique) of identified cities or landmarks in England, five of them dated between September and November 1918

Six gelatin silver prints (each 216 × 166 mm); a few trifling creases; basically in excellent condition.

There are two each of Tetbury and Oxford, and one each of Windsor Castle and Gloucester Cathedral. Four are captioned in the negative, recording the location and date (between 1 October and 25 November 1918); all have alpha-numeric reference numbers. The fifth photograph, possibly a composite of several vertical images, includes a printed caption ('Tetbury ... 28-9-18 - 6000 ft'). The sixth item, one of the views of Oxford, has only the location written in pencil in the bottom margin. We purchased these photographs with a small group of aerial photographs of Leighterton Aerodrome, one of the training airfields for the Australian Flying Corps in England during the First World War; this may suggest their origin.
