Wordless Wednesday: Aviation Month

November is National Aviation Month so, as such when I stumbled upon this postcard from Lock Haven, I simply had to share it!

The card reads:
H.L. Tucker, in charge of first Aerial P.O., and Aviator Paul Peck, first aerial aviator ever sworn in to carry US mail, carried the first mail from Lexington, KY, to Winchester, KY, a distance of twenty miles , June 3d to June 8th, 1912. Peck was since killed in a national meet in Chicago Sept 11th, 1912. Souvenir card Lock Haven Aviation meet and races, October 10th, 11th, and 12th, 1912.

Wordless Wednesday is a GeneaBloggers prompt which features a picture or image.
Locations listed are located in Pennsylvania (USA), unless otherwise noted in post.
