'England's First Aviation Races', Doncaster, GNR poster, 1909

Poster produced for the Great Northern Railway (GNR) advertising the first aviation meeting held in England at Doncaster Racecourse, South Yorkshire from 15th to 23rd October 1909. The meeting was actually held at the same time as a rival event at Blackpool. Although the Blackpool event had the official backing of the Royal Aero Club, a number of prominent early aviators opted to take part in the Doncaster week, including Samuel Cody and Leon Delagrange. Apparently the amount of actual flying done was considerably limited by poor weather. Published by Photochrom Co Ltd of London and Tunbridge Wells
