Class31 - is this the A5 Edgware Road near Colindale, looking towards London? Was the water tower part of the tram depot? It's a brilliant picture.

I thought this was Carlisle Road but now think it is Holmstall Ave. Carlisle Road may have been laid out slightly later a little closer to the factory buildings.

Colsouth - The General Motors Works, Queensbury, 1927 picture is amazing. A bit before my time, and I wondered if you or anyone can add some more location pins so I can get my bearings on that one.

It's looking roughly north-west over the Edgware Road across the top of the building. Stag Lane aerodrome is off the top of the photo, RAF Hendon is sort of behind the viewer and to the right.

Picking up on the coincidence of bazouteast and northlondon boy's parents having worked in the same places,I include this image as my dad worked at Frigidaire, who occupied this building from about 1930. The factory was built during the first world war for the Aircraft Manufacturing Company. They went bust and vacated the factory in 1922 and it was taken over by General Motors for the assembly of Chevrolet Trucks. Truck assembly was moved to Luton in 1930, where Vauxhall Motors was and the truck company was renamed Bedford. The assembly of Frigidaire refridgerators was moved from a small location in Colindale into the factory. During the second world war they made fuel tanks for Halifax bombers. My mum worked for the Phoenix Telephone Co next door to Frigidaire before the war.
