Galveston Beach



We wrap up Aviator Week with this picture of the Galveston Beach in 1913. You can see an airplane flying overhead, and an old race car running along the shore. What exciting days those must have been.

  2. ...and car and airplane races still exist...was at Sun n Fun (Lakeland FL) last week...jet truck vs an Extra 600....300+ mph in a thousand feet...faster for sure but not nearly as exotic as the picture taken over a hundred years ago...
