At the Ludham Archive we are often asked questions about the history of the Broads. Sometimes we know the answer and sometimes we don't. It's the same with old photographs. Sometimes we just don't know what is going on.

To help solve some of these little puzzles, I have created a mystery page on the Archive Website. Why not take a look and see if you have any of the answers?

Hi Nigel
The aircraft photo is, I am 99% sure, taken at Croydon aerodrome which in the 1930s was London's airport. I  also have a photo of a tri motor plane decked in swasticas at the same location.

Thanks Barry for this information. I did wonder if it was Croydon so it is nice to know. The picture came from a negative in Peter Boardman's collection. I wonder where they were going? Maybe I can find out.

You say: "I did wonder if it was Croydon so it is nice to know.. "

I can confirm it was, I sent you an email to the enquiries@ludhamarchive.org.uk address with a link to a website http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Croydon_Airport_Control_Tower_(Disused)_-_geograph.org.uk_2073524.jpg which I believe confirms it. Derek

Hi Derek

Thanks for this. I have not got the e-mail yet. They don't come directly to me. However, that photograph is just the perfect proof.
