I believe that this was the site of Franco Illuminated Signs. This company, operating from a previous site, had supplied the lighting for the 1908 Franco-British Exhibition at Shepherd's Bush (White City). Operating from this site they manufactured the neon advertising signage that decorated Piccadilly Circus from the 1920s - 1970s.

I'm not sure that I've pinned the photo to the right building, but here's the Grahame-White hangar. One of the few WWII-period structures still on the aerodrome site at Hendon.

Rubbish typing. WWI-period of course.

Hi, This is not the Graham White Hanger.

The Graham White Hanger is inside this WWII hanger.



In front of this hanger is 120 Hendon ATC training Drill Square.



Visitors to the RAF Museum on Sunday mornings were treated with our drill display, from a distance.

In a new location and beautifully restored, with a walk-through into the Grahame-White aircraft hangar, here is the Control Tower.

Thank you RAF Museum for two great nights in a row! Opening night of the Aerofilms exhibition in Bomber Hall followed by an English Heritage members' event, thanks for looking after us so well.

Just had time to take a few snap-shots before a meeting the the RAF museum the other day. Hopefully I can make my way up Colindale Avenue and along the Edgware Road to see other Aerofilms sights another day.
