Kent aerial photos: The county from above in the 1950s and 60s

In another chapter of our archive series showcasing Kent from the skies, we take a step further back in time and take an aerial look at the county in the 1950s and 60s.

Rebuilding after the destruction left behind from the Second World War was the main focus in some towns, while others were earmarked for huge expansion.
