Arrival of the Vickers Vimy at Northfield – Ron Dearing

Elsey Dearing, pictured nursing her son Gordon with her eldest son William (Ron’s father) at the arrival of the plane at Northfield. Family legend suggests William John Dearing (husband of Elsey) rode his motorcycle into The Advertiser after he had taken the photo and they put his photo into the newspaper the next day.

Location: Northfield Aerodrome, South Australia

Photograph was taken by Ron Dearing’s late grandfather, William John Dearing of Torrens Rd, Brompton. Private collection.
