Croydon Airport Air Recognition Sign

In the 1920’s and 30’s, pilots navigated by following geographical features on the ground, such as roads and railway lines. Railway stations had the station name painted in large letters on the roof to help pilots plot their position. The same applied at aerodromes, so the letters “CROYDON” were written on the ground to confirm to pilots that they had arrived at (hopefully) their correct destination.
