Goth, ‘Fêtes D'Aviation’, 1911, Rennert’s Gallery

Practically the mirror image of Le Petit Parisien’s poster for the Paris-Madrid race(see PAI-LXXIII, 70), we are here offered the skyline of the small town of Le Puy. The text below advertises a rivalry between Jules Vedrines (who would become the first pilot to break 100 mph the following year) and the Peruvian Juan Bielovucic Cavalié (the second aviator to make it across the Alps). Rare!
