A141(A) Croke Park. Source N/A. N.D. (Independent Aerial Photographic Collection) These aerial views of Ireland from the Morgan Collection were taken during the mid-1950's, comprising medium and low altitude black-and-white birds-eye views of places and events, many of which were commissioned by clients. In 1957, a number were published weekly in the Irish Independent in a series called, 'Views from the Air'. The photographer was Alexander 'Monkey' Campbell Morgan (1919-1958). Born in London and part of the Royal Artillery Air Corps, on leaving the army he started Aerophotos in Ireland. He was killed when, on business, his plane crashed flying from Shannon.
