Women Aviators before WWI

Post by DaveL »

Looking for postcards of any of the women aviators before World War I-- i.e. before 1914. Licensed or not. In particular, I am looking for cards of Marie Marvingt of France. Specifically, she piloted a balloon from France to Southwold in the UK in October 1909. In late 1909-1910, a series of three postcards of this event were published in the UK, one a head and shoulders of her, one a head and shoulders of her passenger, and one of the landed balloon in a tree. I need the one of her. I have a photo of the card of her, but unfortunately this site will not let me upload it.
