Album of aerial photographs of the east coast and north of Tasmania. The aerial photographs are the work of Herbert King, a pioneering aerial photographer operating in the 1920s. An extensive collection of King images is held by QVMAG, including duplicates of images from this album. A newspaper article (Examiner, 7/7/1921, p.4) is pasted into the album detailing 1921 flights by pilot Huxley. These flights, in which King and Huxley were accompanied by Dudley and Eugene Ransom, are likely to be when many of the images were taken. This album was either compiled by Ransom from a set of King's images, or may have been a gift from King himself. The photograph of a plane crash in England (NS4787/1/3 pasted on the front page) is likely to be the work of Dudley Ransom.
These records are part of the holdings of the Tasmanian Archives
