Smithy and his wife Mary with the Altair on the sports deck of the Mariposa. A note on the back of the photo states that it was taken on 28 June 1934, the day that the Mariposa sailed from Los Angeles Harbor, Long Beach bound for Sydney. We don't know what documents Smithy was holding in his left hand but we do know that it wasn't an Export Certificate of Airworthiness for the Altair!Picture: Tim Kalina Collection
