Description

In January 1908, Henri Farman was awarded the Deutsch-Archdeacon Prize for flying the first officially observed kilometer in a closed circuit at Issy-les-Moulineaux. The flight was widely celebrated, although the Wright brothers had achieved the same feat, without French officials, in 1904. This postcard shows his Farman II biplane, based on the Voisin design.
