Struggling to find something to wear this Fashion Friday that announces your status as a Twentieth Century Goddess but is also appropriate for standing on the wing of a plane? We’ve got you covered. Also, jealous of your weekend plans.
This photograph (titled ‘A Twentieth Century Goddess’) is of New York actress Edna French. She’s seen here “scattering rose petals to the four winds as a blessing on the round the world flyers for whom she was nominated as the goddess of flight" at Curtiss Field, Long Island in 1924.This item is part of our Lammot du Pont, Jr. collection of aeronautical photographs (Accession 1975.360).
