Yes the doors faced South East. Planes were towed off the main apron and around the corner on to a seperate apron in front of the sliding doors.Ok, I was thinking the front was the side facing the terminal where later the BA Cargo shed entrance was located.
The front then was the opposite side of the flight shed with the hardstanding in front of it. As you say Viscounts and 748's were taken into the hangar from that side.
The photo was taken before the old art deco style terminal burned down. It was after that, and while the new terminal was being built, that the temporary facility within the hangar was used.
