The post-World War I RAF Pageants were in the spirit of the pre-War shows that Claude Grahame-White put on at Hendon. It seems to have been important for Aerofilms Ltd to take photos at these extravaganzas as the Collection includes a number of shots from different years; these could be sold to the print media of the day. You can find Aerofilms' images published in the Pageant reports in Flight magazine for example. The story surrounding the stage set in this photo can be found here: http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1928/1928%20-%200581.html
