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)

Farnborough Grange, Farnborough, Warwickshire. A view of a man sitting in a Chenard Walcker motor car. Notice it does not have any lights apart from what looks to be a large spot light mounted on the bonnet. An early Automobile Association badge is in front of the windscreen. The organisation was formed in 1905 to help motorists avoid police speed traps!. Photographed by Alfred Newton and Son, 1906
