London's first airport, the Croydon Aerodrome, was constructed there in 1915 but closed in 1959 after Heathrow was built. Scientific instruments, internal-combustion engines, and electronic equipment are manufactured, but Croydon is largely residential. Several office buildings have been constructed in the borough, which also has a technical college and a college of art.
