If you are interested in historic photographs of football grounds, you might like to take a look at an exhibit I've put together on Google Arts & Culture:

Thanks very much.

Sorry Reg, I don't think Aerofilms Ltd were banking on those being money-spinners.

I've just remembered, the Historic England Archive does have some early post-WWII aerial coverage of Swindon that shows the CG (football and cricket) with huts and footpaths on the pitches, presumably relating to the wartime POW camp.

The first aerial photos were taken in 1858.

(Reg might dispute this as it was achieved by a Frenchman)

it was the 1780's, I was basing my date more on the Wright Brothers and powered flight as it would have been a ball ache to lug a balloon and all that kit around the country?
