  • General note

    This photoprint was reproduced in the Daily Telegraph, 28th April 1911. It purports to show aviator Joseph Hammond on his first flight over Sydney, ten days previously. It shows Hammond and his Briston Box-kyte on that day but careful examination of the photograph shows it to be a composite of two negatives. The photographer was William Kimbel. -- Reference: Fixed in time : Australian photographs 1845 to 1984, State Library of New South Wales, 14 November 1984 - 26 May 1985. Sydney : The Library, 1984.
