EDITORS COMMENTS
This postcard image transports us back in time to the early days of aviation, specifically the cross-channel balloon flight by French aeronauts François L Hoste and Joseph Mangot in July 1909. The photograph, taken at Jardin des Tintelleries in Boulogne-sur-Mer, France, commemorates the historic event that took place on July 29, 1886. L Hoste and Mangot are depicted standing proudly next to their hot air balloon, which is tethered to the ground with ropes. The balloon, with its distinctive red, white, and blue colors, is a testament to the pioneering spirit of these early aviators. The scene is set against a backdrop of a bustling crowd, with onlookers gathered to witness the spectacle. The Monument in the background, which is now a memorial to the event, adds to the sense of history and nostalgia. The monument, which was erected in 1910, stands tall and proud, a symbol of the achievement and bravery of L Hoste and Mangot. The cross-channel balloon flight was a significant milestone in the history of transportation and aviation. L Hoste and Mangot's successful crossing of the English Channel in their hot air balloon, which took just over three hours, demonstrated the potential of ballooning as a means of travel and exploration. This postcard is a fascinating glimpse into the past, offering a unique insight into the early days of aviation and the spirit of adventure that drove men like L Hoste and Mangot to push the boundaries of what was possible. The image captures the excitement and wonder of a time when the skies were still a frontier waiting to be explored.
