Such gorgeous old aerial pics are so exciting, even BP is up all night, checking where he used to live and spend his hard-earned dosh...

Sadly where I live doesn't seem to exist, but that's what comes of living in little hobbit holes in the hillside!

We were surprised to find several places, including The Turrets, but you're right about lots of places just not being there, Pips.

These were mainly taken in the 1920s and 1930s, and it amazes me to see how many allotments there were back then, and all so well cultivated.

Presumably Mr Tesco saw that he could do better...

Liverpool has lots of pics, Thud! Someone commented elsewhere, that the docks had just vanished...
