The Avro 504K's

placeholder gifPreston Sands Paignton.

This picture would have been taken in the 1920's. The aircraft may then have been owned by Paris Singer. Even though they were privately owned they still bear their original military serial numbers.

The gaps in the seawall probably date from the great storm of the 19th century, when much of Preston was flooded.
