Aerial photographer Donovan Wilson captured a changing Hereford in the 1950s and 60s
DONOVAN “Don” Wilson took to the air to capture the transformation of Hereford over the 1950s and 60s.
Now, his unique archive of aerial photographs is being offered to the all-new county records office.
Don ran a studio in Commercial Street back when he was ranked among the best aerial photographers in the country.
The archive collection has been compiled by Don’s son Graham, also a professional photographer.
With the 2,600 negatives catalogued, Graham and his sister Pamela plan to gift them to the records office.
Graham says his dad was a “pioneer” of commercial aerial photography and was one of the first to gain an Associateship of the Institute of British Photographers in that field.
