Smithy and his wife Mary with the Altair on the sports deck of the Mariposa. A note on the back of the photo states that it was taken on 28 June 1934. However, local shipping news states that the Mariposa sailed on 27 June 1934 and that the Altair was loaded the previous day. We don't know what documents Smithy was holding in his left hand but we do know that it wasn't an Export Certificate of Airworthiness for the Altair!Picture: Tim Kalina Collection
