Lot of 7 early 1900's pioneer postcards highlighting aviation pioneer Glenn Curtiss. Curtiss progressed from a bicycle racer, to motorcycles and as early as 1904, he began to manufacture engines for airships. One postcard depicts Curtiss' aeroplane in which he won the title at 'Rheims, France, c. 1909. Another is of Curtiss with Frenchman Louis Paulhan at the Los Angeles aviation meeting held at Dominguez Field, Jan. 10-20, 1910. This entire set is fascinating for anyone interested in aviation history.
