County Hall

Modern architecture for the county

By Daphne Knott

County Hall in 1939

This is probably a building that is well known from ground level, but this picture gives a very different viewpoint.   How well do you know County Hall? Have you worked in the building, or maybe just visited for business?

The photograph is part of the Aerofilms collection now held by English Heritage. Aerofilms, founded in 1919 by two World War I veterans, F.L. Wills and C. Grahame-White, took aerial photographs of towns and villages all over the British Isles.

The collection of photograph albums and negatives is now held by English Heritage, who are hoping to set up a project to catalogue these photographs in detail.
