Aerial photograph of Edinburgh

“This incredible aerial cityscape from the 1920s was taken by disabled photographer tied to the plane by a scarf.

Alfred G. Buckham was left seriously injured after his ninth plane crash during WWI, but he was determined to continue with his passion for photography.

Renting planes and sitting in them precariously to get the shot, Buckham captured stunning aerial images of cities in an era when aerial photograph was in its infancy..

His stunning photograph of Edinburgh is taken from the west, with Edinburgh Castle in the foreground and silhouette of Arthur’s Seat visible in the distance. The photograph is thought to be from around 1920 – when Buckham began to take photos after his discharge.”
