  • Gorgeous 1936 Photo Album

    SKU: 21-P-464

     This is one of the most beautiful, fully documented aircraft albums from the "Golden Age of Aviation" I have ever owned!  Most pages have carefully lettered white explanations of aircraft type, registration, date and location of the photos.  The first page is dated 1934 and the Waco pictured is ..."the sport biplane in which Miss Harrell met her death Sunday August 6, 1934 while participating in the 50-mile free-for-all feature event at the Women's National Air Meet at Municipal Airport, Vandalia, O."Some of the other aircraft are the Waco Cabin YOG, Ryan ST, American Airlines Vultee, Stinson Gullwing, Waco YQC6, Lockheed 247, Grumman Gulfhawk and Buhl-Pup.  Locations are mostly Ohio at Lunken Airport, Vandalia, the Waco Co. at Troy and Watson Airport.  A total of 47 photos mostly 2.5x4.25" b&w/sepia tone, a very small number (2) loose in the album and not mounted.  Very good overall condition. (Automatic ordering not available on this item; inquire and an invoice will be sent). ON HOLD

    SKU: 21-P-463

     Sepia-tone 9x5.5" photo of troops charging with gas masks and fixed bayonets. Of course, the shocking portion of the image is the soldier in front being wounded in the neck.  There is a faint negative number "923094" in the lower left and album paper residue on the reverse.  Very good original photo.

  • Memorial Newspaper for Photographer William P. Mayfield - 1974

    SKU: 21-MISC-45

     A 24pp photo essay on the life and work of William Reston Mayfield, a prolific Ohio photographer born in 1896 and passing in 1974.  Mayfield was famous for his photos of the Wright experiments at Huffman Praire and other noteable aviation events in Ohio.  He operated a photo studio in Dayton for 45 years and was on the staff of the Dayton Daily News.  This piece  measures 12x14", is on newsprint, and has well-known Mayfield photos on every page but two which is a biography of Mayfield's work. Very good with usual newsprint toning.  Pictured is the top half of the front page, below which carries the inscription and autograph of a dealer in photographic antiques.
