|Description||Attractions at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair included both airships and balloons. In this photograph, the hydrogen-filled airship California Arrow, piloted by Roy Knabenshue, is just getting under way. Unlike balloons, airships could be steered, and after flights around the Fair Grounds, returned and landed at the Aeronautics concourse. |
