This photograph is from the 1920 to 1930 time period, and shows two aircraft (bi-planes of the same model) flying over the city of Coronado (across San Diego Bay from the city of San Diego. I can tell that it is Coronado because of the street layout and the presence of the Hotel del Coronado ( partially hidden by the lower aircraft).
My grandfather, Lyle Carringer, loved all sorts of technology - cars, aircraft, cameras, etc. I think that he purchased this photograph at some point in time.
I wonder why there is a tow line between the two aircraft. Was that to keep them flying in tandem?
