ROL Agency (act. 1904-1937)



Lefevre, Bétheny, Esnault-Pelterie, Paulhan



Aviation week in Reims, August 1909.



9 silver prints from the period, the largest in 129 x 179 mm format.



Agency stamp on the back, captioned in pencil.



Provenance:



Archives of Lucien Loth who probably collaborated in the early months of his activity with the Rol Agency on the first Champagne Aviation Week, in August 1909.



This photograph shows Wilbur Wright's Flyer: an identical view of the cockpit is preserved in the Departmental Archives but with Wilbur Wright himself. The person in the cockpit is not Wilbur Wright (he looks like Paul Tissandier, who was at Le Mans in 1908 with W. Wright).


We thank Mr Dominique Dufay-Pere for this additional information.
