Bump. I thought these were interesting Model T era photos in the fact that it shows the mix of different make cars in mid-May of 1921.
This a nice one Jay, Best photo ever. The first photo, I wonder what that 3 wheeled buggy is?
Motorcycle with sidecar.
Wow, I would have expected a field full of Jennies. Instead we get to see a Standard J-1, a bunch of weird monocoque bipes, the Remington-Burnelli RB-1, a bunch of Jennies in back and just about a whole squadron of Ansaldo fighters front and centre! Neat!
What's the really small one in the second photo? Foreground, right side.
you would think that guy on the right would just use the ladder !! what are those boxes, shipping containers for the planes? they dont look like rail cars
Interesting how three cars in the bottom photo have their tops tipped back, maybe to allow a view of the sky while keeping some shade. I have never seen that done before. Great pics, Jay.
David whatever the smallest plane is, it's tiny! Too bad that pic isn't a higher resolution. With resources like Aerofiles.com and the Flying And Glider Manual reprints I'm sure the little guy could be ID'ed if only we could see it more clearly.
