              Dayton (EPUB ebook)

              By Dalton, Curt

              The rise and near destruction of Dayton in the early 20th century is chronicled in this visual postcard history. The postcards showcase some of the city s unique commercial buildings, hotels, churches, and residences, many now long gone due to urban renewal and highway constructi...on in the 1960s and 1970s. Landmarks featured include the National Soldiers Home, built for veterans of the Civil War in 1868, and there is an entire chapter dedicated to the events of the 1913 flood that forever changed the face of the city. Over 200 postcard images were selected from the Dayton Metro Library and a number of privately held collections.

              Mr. Wulff's Eagle-Powered Balloon: And other (mostly) bizarre, useless and utterly dangerous ideas on how to fly submitted to the U.S. Patent Office before the Wright brothers soared (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              People have attempted to fly since before the time of Leonardo da Vinci, usually with very little success. Many of the aircraft designs were modeled after birds or sailing ships. Some, like Mr. Wullf's idea, actually included live birds in their plans. What's even more incredulou...s is that the ideas contained in this book somehow passed the stringent guidelines of the U.S. Patent Office and were granted patents for their (mostly) impractical inventions.These patent drawings are reproduced here, along with descriptions of how the aircraft were supposed to fly. Be sure not to miss this exciting look of how, when man attempted to soar like a bird, he usually landed like a lead balloon.
