1910

DESCRIPTION:

Midsummer, 1910, and nothing is sexier than watching those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines from the top of the Église St-Pierre, in Caen. Over 60,000 spectators a day took in the spectacle (though few, supposedly, from this vantage point), which included “competitive events between ‘civilians’ and ‘servicemen'” (Affiches d’Aviation, p. 57) in hot-air balloons and rudimentary flyers in the infancy of the aviators’ age.
