There's vintage & then there's VINTAGE . . . A couple from a box of glass plate negatives with St. Louis Air Meet 1910 on the lid. I'm pretty sure it's a Wright Flyer model "B".
This is quite a press photo which is captioned of Ruth Law in a thrilling race with Gaston Chevrolet in 1918. The plane vs. car race was held at a track in Montreal, Canada. This is a rare and exciting photo of the late Aviatrix.
These pictures are fantastic, Makes me yearn for those times. It is amazing how much things can change without us noticeing, until we see these old photos. Thanks to all who posted them
