Vintage press photo, 8x10", b&w on heavy paper.  Lengthy press release on reverse describes how Charles Julienne De Bever of Roosevelt Field.  NBC sponsored the project which was to have De Bever broadcast during free-fall on July 4, 1929.  De Bever is shown with the microphone across his mouth and the wooden box containing the transmitter.  (No idea how this turned out!).  Excellent; fascinating image!
