East Side hospital, she was at
tacked and beaten into uemi-con-

MOST REMARKABLE PHOTOGRAPHS EVER TAKEN
PICTURES FROM SKY; FROM AN AEROPLANE GOING 60 MILES AN HOUR, SHOWING GRAND PRIX RACER GOING 72 MILES AN HOUR
The Times is proud to present to its readers to
day the above remarkable news photograph of this
year's greatest and fastest automobile race —a pic
ture of the marvelous Grand Prix race taken from
ABOVE the racers—taken in fact, from the clouds.
The camera is rapidly becoming the eye of the
world and the Times shows today how the camera
and the airship can unite to educate and interest us.
The photograph shows graphically what an auto
mobile speeding at 72 miles an hour looks like from
an airship whipping the ether at 60 miles an hour.
It was taken by the noted press photographer, Hugo
Wagner, in an airship driven by the spectacular 1(>

race seen on the road is Ralph De Palma, who won
the Yanderbilt cup race three days before and who
met with disaster five minutes after this photograph
was taken in trying to pass the winner of the race,
Caleb Bragg. I)e Palma is now in a hospital. Note
the car number, 35. The photograph was taken
from a height of about 300 feet, at an acute angle.
The large white streaks forming an angle at the
right side of the photograph are the bars of the bi
plane's skids. Note the men and women walking at
the side of the race course, and their shadows, even
bigger than themselves. This is the first time that
one of the great world's automobile races has ever
been photographed from the air, although unsuccess-
