Title

Chemical works Cologne
Grandpa's aerial photos

Description

Oblique aerial photograph of river valley with roads, railways and at bottom left, a open area of water. At lower right one road runs from middle left to bottom centre which splits into three from two junctions. Railway line runs along road and parallel to the river. Second railway line at higher level runs from bottom centre right to right middle with large viaduct across two roads and the river. Bottom centre to right of river buildings with arrow on bottom edge point at them. To the right and top right are steep tree covered slopes with further rural buildings, roads and fields on top. On the reverse 'chemical works outside Cologne'. This appears unrelated to the second photograph.

The second photograph is a target photograph with flak or photo flashes obscuring the blurred image. Six bombs are seen on the left side. Bottom centre right another bomber is seen flying towards bottom right. The ground below is rural, with fields and minor roads. Caption on bottom is only partial: [S] 'pils 7/8.6.44// NT. 5": 8000'.
