B&W 8x10" press photo of a popular amateur glider with pilot tangled in power lines, Sea Cliff, Long Island. Short story pasted to reverse is dated 7-5-1931. The pilot, a 14-year-old boy is also seen in the wires. Likely a typical scene during the "Golden Age" of aviation! Even more fascinating is the distressed man in the lower left with his hand on his forehead...perhaps his father? Very good with one micro-chip in the lower left corner.
