Guernsey images released

Historical aerial photography of Guernsey, taken between 1940 and 1996, is now available on our website.


The German occupation of the Channel Islands endured for most of the Second World War. The transformation of Guernsey into an island fortress is chronologically recorded in the wartime images now released. Many of the bunkers and gun emplacements from that period in imagery from 1996.


Once famous for its tomato exports, the decline of an industry that defined a part of Guernsey culture is reflected in the progressive disappearance of greenhouses in the imagery dating from the 1970's onwards.
