Morgan Collection

These aerial views of Ireland, taken during the mid-1950's by pilot Captain Alexander Campbell "Monkey" Morgan, provide a birds eye view of Ireland. The collection comprises medium and low altitude black-and- white aerial views of places and events, many of which were commissioned by clients. Many of the images were published in the Irish Independent in weekly Views from the Air series in 1957. Tragically, Captain Morgan was killed in a plane crash in January 1958.

A catalogue of the collection is available in the Reading Rooms, indexed by place within county.
