View from a Watch Office, Biggin Hill

This picture shows the view from the Signals Office on the ground floor of a two storey Watch Office which constituted the focal point of airfield control for the station. Personnel in this Control Tower, as it would later be called, watched and controlled by radio what was happening on the perimeter tracks and runways.
