Airship Hangar No. 2 - Interior in 1970
Airship Hangar No. 2 - Interior in 1970
A view from the central staircase on the north side of the hangar looking towards the east end from about 70 feet above floor level. This view was taken shortly after the Fire Research Station (then based at Borehamwood, Herts) leased part of the hangar from the Ministry of Defence for tests on high-rack storage. The racking in the middle distance of the photograph is about 40 feet high, to give some idea of the scale of this building.
