This is an original press photo. The year 1927 produced more than its share of heroes - good and bad. It was the year a blackshirted Mussolini rose to power and a bare chested Jack Dempsey fell for the second time to Gene Tunney. From Shipwreck Kelly, sitting on a flagpole, to the Duke of Windsor, falling off a horse, everyone defied gravity. It was also the year for blackface jazz singer Al Jolson, beach-coated gangster Al Capone, World Champion Charleston dancer Bee Jackson, bejeweled night club queen Tex Guinan, 16-year-old "Peaches" Browning and the "Daddy" she divorced. It was the year of Babe Ruth's 60th home run, the crooner and the speakeasy. But all of these faded in the shadow of Charles A. Lindbergh, who alone in a small plane, challenged the Atlantic Ocean and won. Photo measures 7 x 9 inches. Photo is dated --1927.
