Rare Antique Painted Photograph of Early Aviator, Aviation Pilot WWI Military
A rare antique photograph depicting a Pilot. The image is a photograph with an oil painting surface, it is a rare subject matter. The Pilot is wearing a leather helmet, goggles and a heavy fur coat, cockpits were not heated in early Aviation so it would have been very cold. I am not sure if this is Military related, his collar has a small rectangle like a badge. The image has a pencil inscription on the back, it is hard to read but looks something like "Oct Poly". The Pilot is in the original frame, there is no glass and doesn't look like it ever had any. The photograph looks like it on board or paper on board, it is hard to tell because of the oil painting surface. The Pilot Portrait is in very good overall condition. There is only one small scratch on his coat, see photos. This came from central Massachusetts but that is all the gentleman I acquired it from could tell me. It would be interesting to research.
