35 x 28 cm art print featuring Aerial View of Edinburgh by Alfred Buckham from the National Galleries of Scotland collection.

Buckham had crashed nine times before he was discharged from the Royal Naval Air Service as a hundred per cent disabled. Continuing to indulge his passion for aerial photography, he wrote that 'If one's right leg is tied to the seat with a scarf or a piece of rope, it is possible to work in perfect security'. Presumably these were the perilous conditions in which the photographer took this dazzling picture of Edinburgh.

Alfred Buckham was an English photographer and he was the first head of aerial reconnaissance for the Royal Navy in the First World War and later a captain in the Royal Naval Air Service.

This print comes rolled in a cardboard tube.
