I was so glad to see some of those old photos as I could recognise some of the era's in the photos, as Britain was a long time in them (or so it seemed) we never had bright colours and the places + the people sometimes looked older than they were, I grew up in the North East, Near Newcastle upon Tyne but it was a good childhood, no shootings, stabbings etc., just normal. But I recently viewed a newish book on the slums of Glasgow, & it was so pitiful it brought me to tears to see how a lot of those people lived or just got by. Plus you forgot to mention about the Jarrow Marchers who were going down to London & the Govt' to let them know how they were living at their wits end to make money to put food on the table. It was such hard times but the Govt' didn't seem to care. Life is funny how it repeats itself & as if we didn't learn the lessons well enough the first time around.
This is my first time viewing history world and i was thrilled at seeing the capture of all these photo's it give's one a true glimpse into what working life was back-then a real eye-opener i wish to thank all who have contributed to this wonderful site.And it will not be my last visit.

Great site. My job is to put Oxfam donated items onto Ebay. I looked up Senior Service Cigarette Cards and thought you might like to know we just put up the complete set of Britain From the Air, all 48 cards. (I saw that you don't have all of them.)
Thanks, Will at Oxfam Shop King's Lynn

Hi came across your website by sheer accident and glad I did. I have tea many fascinating comments left by others. It sure brought back memories of my grand parents. Life and society has changed. Sometimes I wish I could go back in time when the world wasn't so full of hate and neighbours were good neighbours.
