EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the year 1922, where a group of adventurous souls embarked on an exhilarating journey onboard the sea sled Miss England. Created by Kirk & Sons of Cowes, this remarkable vessel was the brainchild of Claude Grahame-White, a renowned English pioneer of aviation. In this snapshot frozen in time, we witness Grahame-White himself at the helm of his experimental 45-foot power sledge. The Miss England, constructed entirely from wood by S. E. Saunders in 1921, showcases both elegance and innovation. Its powerful engine propels it through the water with grace and speed. Grahame-White's daring spirit is evident as he fearlessly navigates through the waves off the coast of Cowes on September 3rd. His achievements in aviation history are notable; he was not only an aviator but also made history as the first person to complete a night flight during the London to Manchester air race sponsored by Daily Mail in 1910. The Isle of Wight serves as a picturesque backdrop for this thrilling moment captured by Arthur Henry Kirk and Edgar WP Kirk. The monochrome aesthetic adds depth and nostalgia to this image that encapsulates both sport and transportation during its time. As we gaze upon this extraordinary scene from nearly a century ago, we can't help but admire these pioneers who pushed boundaries and embraced new frontiers in their pursuit of adventure and progress.
