A Man and His Plane

Ok…so I have no way of knowing if the plane actually belongs to the man in the photo. I am just assuming. Again, I have no details of this print. I would love to know who he was. Did he build the plane? Did he own the aircraft? Or is he just an average citizen posing by the plane? I truly doubt I will ever know his story.

I did some research on the white star with a circle in the middle. But I could not find an exact match. So if anyone out there has more information on airplanes, I would love to know the details.

Until next time…peace

Vintage Photo: Airplane

Purchasing a box of old negatives is always a gift to me. I love seeing a glimpse of a lifestyle long gone.  In a recent find, I was able to digitalize numerous plane photos. Now, the airplanes are definitely far from being modern. In fact, some of them do not resemble airplanes at all.

As always, I wish I could provide more details. But I do not have enough knowledge about this aircraft or any others to provide specifications.

Originally, I thought the plane was in an old barn. But looking at the photo closely, the windows do not match a barn type building. I am assuming the photo was taken inside of a warehouse or hanger. But I could be wrong.

If anyone has any ideas on the plane, I would love to know your thoughts.

Until next time…peace

Lamert Field Air Races

The original photo is the view from the distance. I cleaned it up. I also tried a crop version of the photo.

The back of the original small print reads Lamert Field Air Races. When I researched the name, my results were all Lambert field. I do not know if the spelling was wrong on the back of the photo. Or perhaps, the Lamert Field simply does not exist anymore. I do not have enough information. So if anyone knows the history of Lamert or Lambert, please share.

Until next time…peace
