Found this photo on the OLD Nieuport mailing list archive. DEC 4 19198

" I got this from the Grandsons of Edouard Nieuport. They're going to be a
the memorial Day Show at Columbia this year.

Bertrand POMMIER (grandson of Edouard Nieuport)
To Dick Starks

I visited your slendid web site. Your planes Nieuport replicas designed
by my grandfather are a success. Before meeting you
at Columbia memorial Day Weekend, I send to you a photo of my
grandfather in his first plane built in 1909."

My eyes aren't what they used to be. Is that an opposed cylinder engine?

The two Cylinder engine looks a lot like a Duraq or Duetiel- Chalmers. (Santos used these on the Demoiselle as well)
Great Picture!

wow... what a GREAT project for an ultralight replica! 1/2 VW for power, would even look almost identical to the engine!

Very sorry to hear of the loss of your mother.

Great photo with a beautiful autograph! Did Edouard Nieuport and Louis Bleriot know each other?

Thanks to all for your kind works regarding the passing of my mother.
Good question Cadet Leader, I am sure that Nieuport and Beriot knew each other, if only meeting at the air meets of the time. France was the leader in aviation in the early 1900's. I think all competitors took notes,and probably discussed the latest designs.
