Thank you to Ruth Scott, Bonaly, Edinburgh for sending me these three photographs of Edinburgh Aero Club in October 2006.

Ruth is daughter of James Wood, owner of Wood's Garage in Craighall Road, Edinburgh,  from 1929 until around 1964.

James Wood was one of the founding members of The Edinburgh Aero Club. 

The poster on the back wall is an advert for the Edinburgh Aero Club with the message: 'Members Wanted'

Thank you to Colin Osborne, West Wales, who replied:

"This photograph is the centre section of an Avro 504K.

The absolute giveaway is the shape of the nose skid at the bottom of the photograph and the rib structure at the top of the assembly."
