    I have been in contact with my brother for some time in connection with the railway and the harbour. We have put together a fairly comprehensive "history" of the area. Besides the RAF pictures there is the collection of Germany's Luftwaffe flights in the hope of superiority in their aircraft which thankfully never came to fruition. I have put a great deal of these photograhs in the album Time Past . Whilst working for Cowell, Drewitt and Wheatley in Penzance we oversaw the building of the Yacht Club. There are other albums in my galleries which cover the area and dates of the time in which you have an interest

    Of prime interest is the book The Great Western Railway in West Cornwall, by Alan Bennett with various illustrations of merit.
    I will try and remember the other books that I have on my shelves. Best Wishes, Raymond

    Hi Treeve/Halfhidden,

    Thanks for the info' and update. Love the aerial shot.Had a look in Treeve's Times Past album and got so engrossed I forgot what I was looking for !! Brilliant stuff. You were both quite right, the English Heritage do hold the RAF aerial survey photos. I've been in touch with them and thay heve been very helpful. There are a number of vertical and oblique shots of the area I was interested in, so I'll definitely follow that up.

    Thanks again for your help, don't forget if anything else should come to light I am more than interested.

    Best regards

    Roger
