    The Gene Autry Museum has a really interesting exhibit up now called Dreamcatchers, I believe. It’s about early flight and photography, and there are some photos from the Dominguez meet in it.

      @Mary: Cal State L.A. has quite a bit of material on the 1910 Aviation Meet (actually, there were several) since it’s near where Dominguez Field used to be. My favorite photo is a man on horseback watching the airplanes.

    test

      @Lee: This has been a test of the emergency broadcast system of the L.A. Daily Mirror. This is only a test. Had this been an actual emergency you would have been instructed to turn to the Conelrad station in this area. This has only been a test.
