The original photo has written on the back, "First Flight in Eugene, about 1910". It is stamped number 73. So far, I've been unable to locate stories about early flights in Eugene. I did find information about Eugene Ely, a race car driver who flew a Curtiss airplane in Portland in 1910, and also about Taylor and Scovell, Salem residents who built their own plane patterned after the Curtiss and flew it in Salem on June 4 of that year. This particular photo shows a biplane that looks very much like the Curtiss planes of that era. If you have more specifics, I'd enjoy hearing them. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
