|Description||A collection of Maddison & Hinde and Whitney prints, the majority of which have been mounted on boards. Ernest Whitney has annotated some of the prints.|
There are a number of aerial photographs in the collection: Godmanchester 34; Hartford 217a-c; Huntingdon 152, 153, 218, 219a, 219b, 325, 326; Boston, Lincolnshire 291, 292; Venice 283. 217c and 218 are signed by Charles Barnard and dated 29 July 1931 though whether this is the date taken or that signed is ambiguous. 217a-b are identical prints to 217c so must be 1931 also. 219a-b share some features and identical print size to 218 so must be 1931 also. 34 and 152-3 are the same print size and similar if from lower altitude and are probably of the same date. 325-6 are different print sizes, low altitude and only perhaps of the same date. 291-2 is said to have been taken from Barnard's plane so must be circa 1931 but presumably a quite different sortie. 283 presumably belongs to Whitney's period in the RFC (cf WP1 especially 35-38).
