Original real press photo, 5x7".  Press release on reverse identifies pilot Wesley Smith who will fly with famous aviatrix Jackie Cochran in this famous race.  [Side note: Cochran & Smith flew the ill-fated GeeBee Q.E.D. which developed problems early in the race and never finished.  My personal collection includes Cochran's leather helmet used in this race and her personal model of the Q.E.D.]  Photo is excellent.
