Creation Year: 1906
View of two lifter kites, one obscured, taken from the kite basket. Kites are flying with fairlead comprising long rod attached to lower centre. Probably pre 1906. The basket to flying line traveller shackle can be seen, in part. Same as 115, 730. 730 is poor image. Other items that include photographs of kite trains are 019, 020, 050, 090, 115, 218, 284, 331, 366, 427, 487, 492, 535, 537, 538, 547, 548, 550, 557, 730. Most of these images are either poor or they show the train at height and therefore the kites appear as little more than kite-like dots.
1906 or earlier
