My brother and I are trying to get a high resolution scan of this background digital image (see link) that we came across a few years ago, but we're having no luck as to it's origins. Our only clues are that the photo was taken around 1913, and for some reason, we believe this is somewhere on the coast of Santa Barbara. There is a wealth of information available by looking at the photo, and I can be quite a slewth and spend days looking in the hopes of finding another photo to compare this plane to. But if you know what this plane is, and any other information about it, we would greatly appreciate you helping us out. We would like to make a proper print of it. I'm sure that knowing this information will lead us to the original print or negative quicker.
