RARE aerial photographs taken of Britain between 1919 and 2006 are available online for the first time.

More than 15,000 aerial photos of the West Midlands from the Aerofilms Collection are at www.britainfromabove.org.uk. Many date from a period when the borough was a fraction of the size, with the town centre known as “the village.”

Users can download images as well as help identify a number of mystery locations that have left the experts stumped.
