aerial photograph of Custom House 20 London EC3R 6EE. Grade I listed Custom House was built in 1813 to 1817 and designed by David Laing. The central part of the building had to be rebuilt in 1825 when it was discovered the original builder had not constructed it according to the plans and the pilings were insufficient to support the weight of the building leading to a partial collapse. The building is still used by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
