Glenn Curtiss

"When Glenn Curtiss Astounded the World on a Decoration Day Twenty Years Ago"

Original photograph printed May 30, 1930. Photo is mounted on dark green carton.
Photo is very clear. Light waves in outer areas.
Under the plane in the lower left area is a small white rubbed area.

Here is more of the text on reverse side:

"Albany N.Y. .... The motored "Box Kite" taking off amid the handwavings of friends, as Glenn H. Cartiss made his special flight down the Hudson on a Decoration Day twenty years ago. The plane made better time than even the Twentieth Century and the worls was astonished and thrilled by the thought. Today, following a luncheon given in his honor by the albany Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Curtiss will again pilot his plane over the same record-breaking course from Albany to Govenors Island. There will be striking contrast however. Mr. Cutiss will pilot a Huge twenty-passenger Curtiss Condor that will epitomize the progress of air traffic. Other planes will accompany him on the flight."

This must have been Curtiss' last flight or one of his last flights (on May 30, 1930).
Curis died on July 23, 1930 after appendix surgery of a heart attack.
