aerial photograph of Farringdon tube station, Islington London England UK. Farringdon station was opened in 1863 as terminus of the world's first passenger carrying underground railway, the Metropolitan Railway. The line was powered by steam engines when opened but electrified in 1905 to 1907. Today Farringdon station serves the London Underground and is an interchange station between Thameslink and the Crossrail for which a new Thameslink ticket hall has been built. The original 1922 station designed by architect Charles Walter Clark remains in use.
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.
