There was a guy I was chatting to a long while back doing WWII console game for DDay landings and was after just this sort of thing as maps and ref material for the game. He wanted some maps he had georefferenced to modern maps so he could work out where stuff was at the time. I bet he would have wanted maps like these.

How about what the house look liked befroe it was bombed.
Question, usally with photos the rights go with the Photo, did he reserve the rights so that he could publish copies?
