Item Description

Colorized photo print of Weirs Sea Plane, 1925

Framed photo


About the piece: Before Irwin’s Winnipesaukee Gardens were built, the original seaplane base in Weirs Beach had been located on the other (northern) side of the Weirs Café. This photo shows the seaplane base around 1925, shortly after it had relocated to its permanent position on the south side of the Weirs Café. Note the designation “US Air Mail” on the body of the seaplane. Earlier in 1925, Bob Fogg was granted the country’s first RFD airmail service contract. On August 1, 1925, Fogg began the “aero-marine” mail service, as it was called, delivering mail to ten points around Lake Winnipesaukee. (Information courtesy of The Weirs Times).
