aerial photograph of Pilgrim Street Newcastle upon Tyne , Tyne and Wear England UK showing the art deco Odeon Cinema before it was demolished. Opened in 1931 as the Paramount Cinema it had seats for over 2500 people and showings were accompanied by a Wurlitzer organ which rose up from the floor. As well as films, the cinema also held music concerts and even had an orchestra pit. Bands that played here included the Rolling Stones, The Who and Rod Stewart. The cinema finally closed in 2002 and was demolished in 2017.
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.
