Larger format 4.5x6" original vintage photo with pencil text on the back:  "An old Camel tried to get into the hangar quickly via the roof, about 1917, Coconut Grove, Fla."  Photographer's rubber stamp and "original print, no neg".  Very good. (Added by and thanks to Mark Pilkington who identified this as an Australian RAAF Sopwith Pup that crashed into a hangar at RAAF Base Point Cook in 1924.  Obviously the pencil text on the back is a fantasy!)
