Poster, Meeting d'Aviation Nice 10-25 Avril 1910. Photolithograph by Gibson. Poster produced for an early aviation meeting in Nice, France, held on 10-25 April 1910, showing an airman flying above the coastal town of Nice, scattering flowers from his aeroplane. Prize money offered at Nice totalled 210,000 francs (£9,000) and the speed prize was won by Efimoff at 35 miles an hour. The sport and spectacle of the first meetings such as those held at Nice were instrumental in the great rise in popularity of aviation in the first decades of the century.
