In 1961 I started work at Heathrow, and within three weeks was transferred to the new Turriff Building on the Great West Road. The canteen was on the tenth floor. Imagine having a subsidised lunch and looking out over Brentford. Could there be a finer view. The freight trains crossing the Great West Road and heading around the curve by the former Brentford Station, crossing the canal and heading into the docks. The Jantzeen factory right opposite. Those part double decker BEA coaches with destination blinds showing Prague, Paris, Rome, and Amsterdam, all places I would visit in later years as I worked for an airline.
