    Description

    Amelia Earhart Signed Harris & Ewing Photo. A stunning 8" x 10" photograph signed "Amelia Earhart" at the lower left corner in dark ink. A very fine example of her signature on a studio portrait. A particularly desirable bust portrait of the world's most famous female aviator dressed in her fur-lined flight jacket. With copyright licensing stamp on verso. A pilot, Earhart in 1928, was the first woman to cross the Atlantic in an airplane. In 1932, she became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic, and in 1935, she duplicated that feat with the Pacific Ocean. In 1937, she attempted an around-the-world flight with her navigator Fred Noonan, but disappeared near Rowland Island in the South Pacific. Several relatively minor creases, two paperclip marks at upper left margin, and one small marginal tear do not detract from this arresting image. An excellent portrait worthy of restoration but is very displayable as it is.
