aerial photograph of the Empire Hotel, Bath in Bath Somerset England UK.The Grade II listed Empire Hotel was built in 1901 and designed by Major Charles Edward Davis who was at the time the Bath City Architect. The design involved the then new technique of steal structure including Rolled steel joists on cast iron columns with Limestone ashlar cladding. The building was requisitioned by the Royal Navy during the second world war and retained by them until the end of the 20th century. It has since been converted to retirement flats with a restaurant on the ground floor.The conversion has retained much of the original interior including marbled columns and fire surrounds with over-mantels.

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.
