Postcard featuring a hand-drawn illustrated depiction of a monoplane manufactured by Antoinette, a French manufacturer of light petrol engines, and flown by French aviation pioneer Arthur Charles Hubert Latham (1883-1912). Antoinette notably partnered with Latham on a number of promotional flights, including Latham's two unsuccessful attempts to cross the English Channel in July 1909 and various feats at the Grande Semaine d'Aviation de la Champagne held in Reims, France from August 22-29, 1909. This postcard is part of a set originally collected in a scrapbook entitled Album Gravures et Cartes-Postales: Vieux Paris Types Petits Métiers et Cris De La Rue (1909).
