Cornwall From the Air

Rare photos of Cornwall dating back to the 1920s are going on show for the first time.
Aerial shots of the River Fowey, Newquay and St Ives have been revealed by English Heritage.
Britain from Above, a new website, features some of the oldest and most valuable images of the Aerofilms Collection, a unique and important archive of over 1 million aerial photographs taken between 1919 and 2006.
Anna Eavis, Head of Archive at English Heritage, said: “The Aerofilms Collection embodies all that is exciting about aerial photography. What is equally remarkable is the skill of the expert staff in England, Scotland and Wales who have saved and conserved these vulnerable negatives and prints and converted them into the high resolution images you see on screen today. We are pleased that the items have been given safe, long term homes, and that each of the organisations involved has been enriched immensely by their addition.”
But the southwest archive also contains a mystery photo that experts have not been able to identify so far. Aside from Truro Cathedral, the River Fowey, the Atlantic Hotel, Newquay, St Ives and St Michael's Mount, can you work out where in the southwest the final photograph is of?
