Aerial photos:

NCAP - the National Collection of Aerial PhotographyNCAP - the National Collection of Aerial Photography (part of Historic Environment Scotland) has a huge collection of aerial photos from arounfd the world. There are several hundred views of Newport, Wormit & Forgan, taken at various dates from the 1940s, possibly even earlier. Keep enlarging the map to find the location of the centre of each photo.
Britain From Above has a smaller collection, probably a sub-set of those on the NCAP site, and are not easily searched.
