DO YOU know where these aerial views of Newport are? They were taken some time between 1919 and 1960. Can you work out when they were taken?

2 and 3 are both Whiteheads, from opposite sides. I used to live in St Davids Cres which was built on the sidings at the bottom RH corner of picture 4

As for when they were taken, I would suggest 1948 - building of Gaer estate just after WWII.
