FROM CARRIAGES TO FLYING MACHINES.
Black and white photograph, 7½ x 9½ inches, mounted.
One of the most extraordinary images in the history of flight: Wilbur Wright and his pupil Paul Tissandier soar over three horse-drawn carriages and their drivers in January 1909. In the background, a horse starts at the plane, unaware that his role as a method of transport is on the wane, and that he is witnessing the future.
