Aerial photographs of the Oval History area in 1945

Below you can see various photographs taken just after the war in 1945. There are two versions of the same photograph, one with street names highlighted to help locate yourself, one without street names so that detail is not obscured with text. The photographs are part of a series taken in 1945 and can be seen in full on Google Earth.

If you look closely you can see bomb damage and cleared areas, particularly at the bottom of Cranworth Gardens, Richbourne Terrace and between South Island Place and Crewdson Road.
