"In the Japanese Fishing Village, Traditional Boys Day Fish / Kites Fly Against Florida's Bright Blue Sky at MARCO POLO / PARK, Just North of Daytona Beach, Florida" unused continental postcard with 1971 copyright, excellent condition. This defunct theme amusement park -- replete with Ferris wheel, spinning tea cup ride, log flume, etc. -- operated less than 4 years. With stiff competition from nearby Walt Disney World in Orlando, and no easy exit for south-bound travelers, it folded quickly. Modern era but rare nonetheless! $8.00 akf(m)
"JOCKEY'S RIDGE / Nags Head, North Carolina / " showing 2 enthusiasts checking their large kite, unused chrome postcard with tiny corner crease. $1.00 (nk)
LÉO MAIX. "L'Aviation en 1908 / Photo J. Bouveret Le Mans" signed Maix art depicting one of the Wright Brothers hoisting a model biplane like a kite, carte postale mailed 10 -10 08 from St. Mars-de-la-Brie Sarthe (near Le Mans where they were visiting), front smudges probably from cancel ink, back with a lot of spotty toning. $8.00 a(p)a(m)k NEW / NEU / NOUVEAU
"MAN LIFTING KITES ON / HARVARD AVIATION / FIELD. // COPYRIGHT BY / ARAM." more fully 5 kites designed by Samuel F. Perkins for military reconnaissance purposes, being tried at Quincy Massachusetts, September 1910. The Library of Congress has the original photographs of the event & is the source of our information. Note the tent-like structure beneath the scout, intended to cushion any fall. The postcard itself is rare, as is any that deals with an experimental military program. Most unusual, you will have to admit. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (about 771% of original print area) & enhanced 200-dpi scan in .jpg format. $2.00 km(q)m(a)c(h)
"The daring Kite Man takes to the air at one of the / four water ski shows held daily at beautiful Cypress / Gardens near Winter Haven, Fla." including 2 women nearby on water skis, unused chrome postcard, fairly fresh. $2.50 f(c)k
