Revealed Google Map of London 1909
« on: Saturday 12 November 11 11:34 GMT (UK) »
Folks, I have just found on Mail Online November 12 2011, 12pm. the most fantastic aerial photos of London in 1909.  They were done by Sir Norman Lockyer in a helium balloon.  They include many areas of London including the area around Buckingham Palace and up and down the River Thames and even a football stadium.  Anyone researching ancestors in London at that period would love to see these pix.  Enjoy Ann ??? ::)

Hi Ann

Thanks for starting this topic. I saw it in the Metro and then when I came to post it realised I had put the newspaper out for recycling.
