  • Early Irvin Air Chute Bag - Circa 1925-35

    SKU: 21-MISC-40

     Tan canvas bag about 15"x15"x20" with a top flap secured by 7- Carr Fast Co. post fasteners and front & rear loop web carrying handles.  Flap carries the stenciled logo of Irving.  Included is a postal cover commemorating the fatal flight of Paul Redfern attempting a solo flight from Brunswick, NJ to Rio de Janeiro in 1927.  The story attached to this bag is that it belonged to Redfern but I have no documentation.  Nevertheless, a very early artifact from the Golden Age of Aviation.  Structurally sound with no tears but with soiling throughout.

  • Bleriot at Reims - 1909

    SKU: 21-P-450

     Historic original 5x7" sepia-tone press photo of Louis Bleriot being interviewed by the Reims Committee.  The aero meet at Reims was, of course, the first recognized aviation meet featuring heavier-than-air aeroplanes.  Bleriot had a strong showing, winning a prize for the fastest lap and exciting the crowd when his aircraft crashed and burst into flames.  Identifying text in ink on the reverse along with stamps of the photographer and an engineer.  Very good.
