Reply Chris June 15, 2011 You’re right Johnnie, I hadn’t spotted that. Now corrected. Reply Deborah Lee June 17, 2011 Loving these images! Utterly fascinating …. What a different world we live in now. Reply Ken October 12, 2012 These are the images that influenced Paul Nash’s famous paintings. I remember seeing them at the Tate, displayed alongside the painting. Reply Troy December 28, 2012 I’d love to see the crackpot conspiracy theorists call these “chemtrails” now.
