1928 Photograph of pioneer Aviatrix Ruth Elder. Stunning image shows her posed in front of her plane and striking a look that would help her become the first famous lady of the air. She was the most famous female aviator in the days before Amelia Earhart and still one of the most celebrated and collected. Quality and condition of this silver gelatin original make it a fine early example. One of the most underrated female pioneers of the 20th century and this is one of her better images, issued by Acme and stamped on the back with a full paper caption.
