A bit of history of Southampton Airport.
The airport's runway is made over the remains of a Roman villa. it had been excavated in could 1925 however the villa had been robbed of a lot of of its material.
The site's reference to aviation are often derived back to 1910 once pioneer pilot Edwin Rowland Moon used the meadows belonging to North Stoneham Farm as a take-off and landing spot for his airplane, moon-ray Mk II.In 2010, the airfield organized a series of events to commemorate the a centesimal day of the primary flight at the airfield.
During the first world war, once forces from the USA Navy arrived in 1917, work on the building of hangars began. At the height of the yank presence, some 4,000 officers and men were billeted in tents and huts on the adjacent London to Southampton railway line.
After that war, the location became a transit camp for refugees, principally Russian, UN agency were anxious to sail to America from the port of Southampton. The shipping firms Cunard and White Star Line (the Oceanic Steam Navigation Company) beside the Canadian Pacific Railway shaped the "Atlantic Park Hostel Company" to accommodate them quickly. In 1921 the hangars were born-again into dormitories, kitchens and eating rooms.
