aerial photograph of the Oxford University Museum of Natural History England UK. Oxford University Museum of Natural History was built 1855 to 1860 to a design by Thomas Newenham Deane and Benjamin Woodward. The building was hoste to a great debate on evolution at a meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science in 1860 where biologist Thomas Huxley spoke for Darwins theories and and the Bishop of Oxford, Samuel Wilberforce spoke against. In 1894 the building hosted the first public demonstration of wireless telegraphy ( radio ) Professor Oliver Lodge sent a radio signal from the adjacent Clarendon Laboratory which was received by a radio receiver in the lecture theatre.
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.
