The photographing aircraft is on top the Newmains Road looking towards the Hangars which are to the left . They are South of the road; we must be looking west not north east as advertised.

Jenny's Farm, named after the owner, Jenny Gilchrist, operated all through the life of the airport. There were two spinster sisters who in the late 30s through 50s drove an old Bull-nose Morris. As a young child, my mother used to hide when they passed as they would shout "Hey, Bell" at her (she had 12 brothers and sisters and I guess the Gilchrists couldn't keep the forenames straight) "Come away for a lift hame".

Could this be the Renfrew WW1 Air Station?
