Los Angeles is getting ready for Aviation Week, Jan. 10-20, 1910.

I found a copy of the Aviation Week poster on the L.A. Conservancy’s “The Sixties Turn 50” tour.

Dec. 6, 1909, Aviation Week 

Reprints of the Aviation Week poster are available on EBay, along with other items from the event.  

Dec. 6, 1909, Booze Orgy 
“Death Stops Booze Orgie”

Dec. 6, 1909
“Train Wheels Crush Face”

Dec. 6, 1909: The copy desk outdid itself with these headlines. I thought “Death Stops Booze Orgie” was the headline of the day until I found “Train Wheels Crush Face.”
