London in 1959 and in 2010 (the area around the new egg-shaped City Hall).

A collection of aerial images that covers virtually every decade in the last 100 years has been revealed by Bluesky.

The Old Aerial Photos website features more than a million aerial photos dating back as far as 1917 which visitors can search by simply entering a postcode, address or grid reference.

Rachel Tidmarsh, Managing Director of Bluesky said: "The historic images we have brought together offer a real insight into the development of every village, town and city in the UK.

We have images from virtually every decade in the last 100 years making this a truly unique resource for anyone with a personal or professional interest in the past. The images have proved an invaluable resource for many customers, including solicitors and expert witnesses, wanting evidence to substantiate their boundary disputes, planning disputes or rights of access claims."

Who on earth would buy a photo they can't see a preview of for 117!? All the search function does is tell you there is a photo for that area, it doesn't allow you to see anything.

I'm sure the archives have been costly to acquire and maintain, but really, even if there was a preview, there must be an immense market they're missing out on simply by charging such an extortionate rate (with or without a preview). Half that price would still be too expensive IMO.
