Swindon from Above - THIS WEEKEND

Historic Aerial Photography on display in Swindon town centre
On Saturday 27 March the Swindon town centre Big Screen, in Wharf Green, will be showing a selection of fantastic old aerial photographs from the Aerofilms Historic Collection, an important archive of 800,000 aerial photos of Britain which English Heritage and partners in Wales and Scotland acquired in 2007.

The photos, showing what Swindon looked liked from the air in the first half of the twentieth century, will be displayed on the screen between 12 noon and 2 pm.
Members of the public will be able to share their thoughts and memories of the places in the photographs and talk to a team from the National Monuments Record, the public archive of English Heritage, to discuss the images and find out more about plans to make more of these images available online.
Since the purchase, English Heritage and its partners have begun planning for the comprehensive cataloguing, conservation and digitisation of the collection and will be submitting a Stage 2 bid for Heritage Lottery Funding in June.
