This really low-level shot is a great view of the new buildings at Heston, providing all mod-cons for the airpark. Aerofilms Ltd would perhaps have looked like a really up-to-the-minute enterprise; technology, flight, modernism and excitement personified in the crisp white lines of the buildings and the smell of photographic developer and aircraft fuel.

Is that the photographers eye looking back at us?

It`s spooky, but probably just a trick of the light.

Hi petet,



I think it's most likely marks left by some poorly-executed processing of the glass plate. There are other examples of water marks and other liquids on some of the plates, as well as damage caused by a variety of problems that our Conservation Team deals with.



Yours, Katy
