From a bird’s-eye view above the cockpit of a phantastical flying machine, we share in the pilot`s vertiginous, breath-taking vista of Nice and the French gold coast as he scatters a bouquet of roses to the town quite literally at his feet.
Brossé, a graphic chronicler of the city of Nice, not only provided us with a magnificent and extremely decorative poster for the 1910 air show, he was also one of the key organizers.
