New York (N.Y.)
Date:
[ca. 1920s-1930s]
Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of seven scrapbooks containing a large number of mostly black and white photographs. A preponderance of the images were taken in the New York Metropolitan area and relate to general aviation in the 1920s and 1930s. Racers (many which are one of a kind) and military aircraft are also featured. Most of the photos seem to have been taken by Jack McRae but there are also many gathered from other sources, most notably the Air Force and Wright Field Collections.
