aerial photograph of the Tuxedo Royale just before it sank. Originally launched as the TSS Dover in 1965 she was a RORO ( roll-on/roll-off ) ferry built on the River Tyne by Swan Hunter in Wallsend. She spent many years near her birth place as a floating nightclub, the Tuxedo Royale, before being moved to Middlesborough where she was left to decay. She was registered on the National Historic ships register in 2016, caught fire in 2017 and was scrapped in 2018.
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.
