Caption:   Airplanes on Redwood City field (c.1917). Redwood City Airport was started in early 1916 by aviator Silas Christofferson. Frank Bryant purchased the business in 1917 and renamed it the Redwood City School of Aviation. Bryant sold the flight school and grounds to Walter Varney, a World War I flying ace, in 1920. The airport existed until the early 1930's, when the land was subdivided and sold for commercial use. Redwood City Airport was located near what is now Chestnut Street, between Veterans Blvd. and Broadway.
