COLLECTION OF 50 BALLOONING PHOTOGRAPHS INCLUDING STEREOVIEWS. This collection came as a group of loose photos. They may or may not have once been in an album. They are all of ballooning in New Hampshire, some at the Concord State Fair on Sept. 12, 1907, and some from a Balloon Ascension in Contoocook River Park by Professor Binette on Sunday, July 24th, 1932. Some of the images may be from other ascensions as well. There are 50 photos in all, 8 of them are Stereoviews. Here are the approximate sizes of the images: 5 are 5″ x 7,” 17 are 4 3/4″ x 4,” 4 are 3 3/4″ x 3 1/2,” 1 is 4″ x 3,” 1 is 4″ x 2 1/2,” 13 are 3 1/4″ x 2 1/4,” 6 card-mounted stereoviews are 2 1/2″ x 4 3/4,” 1 unmounted stereo is 2″ x 4 1/4,” 1 smaller stereo is 1 3/8″ x 3,” and the smallest photo is 1 3/8″ x 1 1/2.” This last photo shows a man hanging by his teeth, likely from the balloon which is out of the frame above him. Some of the images have pencilled notations on versos that provide info as to location. Many of the images show a daredevil hanging beneath the balloon. All of the images are shown. Please note that there are several prints of some of the images. This is a rare grouping of American balloon ascensions in the early part of the twentieth century. G-VG. $250
