Louis Blériot - 1909 Vintage Photo - Accident at Grande Semaine d'Aviation at Reims

Louis Charles Joseph Blériot (1 July 1872 – 1 August 1936) was a French aviator, inventor and engineer. He developed the first practical headlamp for cars and established a profitable business manufacturing them, using much of the money he made to finance his attempts to build a successful aircraft. In 1909 he became world-famous for making the first airplane flight across the English Channel, winning the prize of £1,000 offered by the Daily Mail newspaper. Blériot was also the first to make a working, powered, piloted monoplane and was the founder of a successful aircraft manufacturing company.

Photograph includes original press stampings and caption on verso.

Original, vintage, silver gelatin photograph measures approximately 4 x 5.5 inches. Fine vintage condition with some light expected signs of age including some previous mounting remnants on the verso.
