Bridgewater House, London DD56_00034

BRIDGEWATER HOUSE, Westminster, London. Interior view. Before the First World War Bridgewater House contained the finest private picture gallery in England, admitting visitors on Wednesdays and Saturdays after previous application in writing. Lady Ellesmere's Boudoir (shown here) was not open to the public when the family were in residence. The circular painting is a Raphael Holy Family known as 'Madonna with the Palm Tree', and to its right Raphael's 'The Madonna del Passeggio', both now on display in the National Gallery of Scotland. To the left is a studio copy of Raphael's 'Madonna with the Blue Diadem' (the original is in the Louvre). Photographed by Newton and Co (1890-1914)

Spirit of St Louis EPW018121

Charles Lindbergh and the Spirit of St Louis coming in to land at Croydon Aerodrome, 29th May 1927 having flown in from Brussels. Lindbergh had made his record-breaking single-handed flight across the Atlantic only nine days before. After landing he made an additional five minute demonstration flight circling the aerodrome. According to Lindbergh's flight log: "Took off before end of landing roll to avoid injuring crowd, which broke through police lines. Stabilizer damaged by pressure of crowd. Repaired at Croydon". This aerial photograph is well positioned to show the crowds watching his descent. From Croydon Lindbergh flew to Gosport where the Spirit of St Louis was disassembled and packed aboard a US cruiser for its trip home to the United States. From a copy negative.
