Thanks to all who have commented that we need to flip this image. We will try to get it corrected as soon as possible. This image is featured in our new book 'Aerofilms a History of Britain from Above' pages 68&69. It is the correct way around there.

Many thanks,

Liz

Can we get this image flipped back the right way?

This photograph is transposed as the National Museum is on the right side of the City Hall when looking from the perspective of this view.

Has this image been reversed at some point? I seem to remeber the layout of the buildings is a mirror of this one.

You are correct. The National Museum of Wales is on the left in the photo, but is on the right in reality.

The central building is the City Hall and - on the photo - the right buildiing is the Law Courts.

Definitely mirrored.
