Allen Aerial Photographs
Major George Allen (1891-1940) was one of the first people in Oxfordshire to own an aeroplane - a De Haviland Puss Moth, named 'Maid of the Mist'. He flew extensively across Southen Engand, and other areas, taking aerial photographs from 1933 until 1939.


Many of these photographs are of archaeological sites but he also took photographs of towns and cities, racing circuits, gravel pits and cloud formations.

The Ashmolean Museum has a collection of around 2000 photographs taken by Allen and bequeathed to the museum after his death.

This searchable catalogue contains details of the approximately 2000 aerial photographs taken by Major George Allen from 1933 to 1939, and now held by the Ashmolean Museum.

The entry for each photograph contains details of the site or sites featured, the date taken, the album reference and negative number. A digital image of each photograph is also accessible.

Further copies of these photographs are available from the Ashmolean Museum.
