Rambling observations on books, history, movies, transit, obsolete technology, baseball, and anything else that crosses my mind.

Abhorrence of Anything Fly-by-Night -- November 2, 2012
Actress Audrey Ferris was a WAMPAS (Western Association of Motion Picture Advertisers) Baby Star of 1928. She appeared in some silent and sound movies and then retired. Here she poses with what appears to be a Ford Trimotor. I make my guess because of the corrugated metal skin and the supports that appear to reach out to the outboard engines.Why is she up on a ladder? Perhaps to christen a new plane or the first plane on a new airline route.
