1920s pic of the day: Desford airfield, home of the Leicestershire Aero Club (1929)

Courtesy of the mobile historian @abearpursuesme for this fantastic image.

First set up as a landing ground for the Royal Flying Corps in 1916, Desford airfield reopened as home of the Leicestershire Aero Club with a “great air pageant” in September 1929. It later became home to Reid and Sigrist’s Flying School and Factory.

Erika has a new book: Modern Dublin is essential reading for anyone interested in Dublin, heritage and the politics of the built environment.
