From the Stacks - Archive of the Month

This is one of a set of 28 aerial photos of Feilding from 1966. Councils have used aerial photographs in planning work since at least the 1940s and we have many different sets spread amongst the council collections. The sets for Feilding are particularly comprehensive, with ones available for 1942, 1966, 1971, 1975, 1980 and 1985 which can all be viewed online.
