Charles A. A. Dellschau Dreams of Flying

Post by tabby »

What a creative dreamer, talented artist and visionary! By a series of interventions, these volumes narrowly escaped destruction numerous times and it makes you wonder what other wonderful things lie buried in our landfills.

"What are these scrapbooks? Are they an elaborate fantasy, spun out of the overactive imagination of an aging man? An outright delusion? Or are they earnest recollections of a lost time, a commemoration of the best years of a long, hard life?"

Maybe additional research will someday reveal whether there actually was a Sonora Aero-Club but at this point I'm leaning towards believing it was part of a scenario created by Mr. Dellschau. His artistic doodles and technological whimsy were a hobby of sorts and kept him occupied in his later years. That's my speculation anyway ... what do you think?
