Description

Gorgeous cockpit photo inscribed by Earhart to her radio technician

Stupendous vintage matte-finish 7 x 9 photo of Earhart perched on the edge of her cockpit, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “To Henry Pike with appreciation of his radio help, Amelia Earhart.” Attractively matted and framed to an overall size of 17.75 x 19.75. In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient’s daughter, who explains that Pike, a member of the Army Air Corps, was Earhart’s radio technician during preparations for her history-making flight from Hawaii to California in 1935—the first-ever solo flight of this route. Also included are two original unsigned photos of Pike working on Earhart’s radio. A top-notch image with a provenance of unusual significance. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
