Schools have access to aerial photographs taken after WW2 showing their local area and how it has changed over time. These images have never before been stitched together to show Londoners how their city looked after this devastating period. Thanks to our funders, the National Lottery Heritage Fund, part of the project is create this full image of 24,000 images, online on Layers of London, for the first time.
Layers of London has its own geo-referencer tool, the Layermaker, which schools can use to get their learners geo-referencing, exploring aerial images of their area showing damage from the Blitz, and using maps as a historical source. You can watch our video to see how it works by clicking here.
