Looking back: Aerial pictures from Peterborough’s past - part 1

These images were taken by the Peterborough Telegraph in 2009.

They were part of a series of spotlights on the city taken from an aircraft by PT photographer David Lowndes.

2009 was the year that Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States, US Airways Flight 1549 ditched in the Hudson River in an accident that became known as the “Miracle on the Hudson”, Avatar was released in cinemas, breaking many box-office records, and here hundreds enjoyed the annual Peterborough Festival.

Do you think the city has changed a great deal in the last decade or so?
