photograph of a man flying, ca. 1910


















If you zoom in on it, the image of the guy in the air looks drawn and superimposed. Even so, I found this photo to be eerily cool.

from airform archives, who also has a fascinating photostream.

Looks like a balloon to me. That group of people around the pile of ashes? appear to be looking up at it. There also appears to be at least two other objects floating higher up.

I don't know. The thought crossed my mind, but I can't tell, for certain.

I zoomed way up close and the image looks to be a slightly different color temp than the rest.
