Scope and Content Aerial view of Crewe Toll and Granton, Edinburgh This oblique aerial photograph of the Crewe Toll and Granton areas of Edinburgh was taken during World War II by the Royal Air Force. A vital industrial plan - Ferranti's engineering, which assisted in the development of radar - is under construction in the near foreground. A pillbox is located in the middle of the large road roundabout in the foreground. Oblique air photographs were taken by the RAF No 1 CAM (camouflage) unit to check the effectiveness of camouflage on industrial structures such as coal mines, shipyards, electricity generating stations and engineering works when viewed from the air.
