Portishead Dock JEH_22046_048

Portishead Dock, North Somerset. In 1860 a deep water dock was built to accomodate large ships that had difficulty reaching Bristol Harbour. With the closure of the adjacent power stations in 1982 the dock lost its primary purpose and was closed in 1992. It has since been redeveloped as a marina.

Heston Aerodrome c.1930s AFL03_aerofilms_c19981

Heston Aerodrome, Hounslow, Middlesex. The control tower (centre) may have been the first purpose-built example and became the model for this class of building. Between 1931 and 1937 Heston Airport was operated as a commercial airport by Airwork Ltd (whose logo appears on the the Customs House and aircraft), after which it was taken over by the Air Ministry. It was used as a fighter base during wartime, but Heathrow was preferred as the site for a commercial airport and the aerodrome was closed in 1947. Aerofilms Collection (see Links)
