Excellent, we should recreate it...
Our grandfather, William Thomas Camper Atkinson, of 13 Church Road, Tottenham, also photographed the Barton-Rawson airship (image attached).

Thanks, that's a much better photo. Do you know if that was actually in flight, or has it been edited to make it look like it was?
It was actually in flight - apologies for the copyright protection but this image is probably quite valuable.
I'd love to see a photo your grandfather taking the photo! I wonder what he was perched on?
Probably with a tripod on the side of Ally Pally's steep hill.
