Flying for the Summer Week-end by C.E. Turner
Illustration from 1928 by C.E. Turner reflecting the growing rise of civilian flying in the 1920s. The caption reads,'...only last month there was a house-party at which the ten guests (all owners of 'planes) arrived from London and Canterbury in five 'Moths' and a 'Widgeon.' The landings were made in the host's grounds, and the little flying-machines were housed in the ordinary car garages. On the Sunday, the host adn hostess, accompanying their guests, the whole party flew from Cirencester to Lambourne Down, in Berkshire, for a picnic. Our drawing does not illustrate a particular event, at which Mr and Mrs. Fitzgerald, or Marsden Manor, Cirencester, were the hosts but it is typical.'
