This item is a 4 1/2" X 5",black and white photo of Amelia Earhart. Aviation legend Amelia Earhart is most famous for the mysterious circumstances of her death: she disappeared in 1937 somewhere in the South Pacific, near the end of an attempted round-the-world flight. Before her disappearance, Amelia Earhart was one of the most famous women in America. She had set many flight records, including becoming the first woman to fly solo across both the Atlantic Ocean (in 1932) and the Pacific Ocean (in 1935). She also was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic in a multi-person plane, making the crossing in 1928 with pilot Wilmer Stultz and Lou Gordon. She and her navigator, Fred Noonan, disappeared near Howland Island in the South Pacific on 2 July 1937, on one of the last legs of their around-the-world flight. Despite extensive searches at the time (and in the years since), no clear evidence has ever been found of Amelia Earhart, Fred Noonan, or their plane. She authored the books 20 Hours, 40 Minutes (1928, about her first trans-Atlantic flight) and The Fun of It (1932). The photo has been signed by Ameila Earhart to a smartly mounted signature slip on the front. The signature slip measures approximately 1" X 2 1/2".................BOTH PHOTO AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.
