Having been accommodated in the London Aerodrome Hotel and then in "Aerial House" on The Hyde, these new offices on Colindale Avenue had been the first for the company that really provided the working space that they needed. F.L. Wills described the building as a "factory". From 1925 to 1927 the numbers of oblique air photographs the firm was taking had increased gradually. In 1928 and 1929 the oblique output shot up. Over this period, Aerofilms Ltd had been producing more vertical air photo mosaics too.

The company moved offices to Colindale Road in 1928/29. Since 1924/25 they had been based in Aerial House on the Edgware Road.
