About Artist Proofs: Geoffrey de Havilland initially designed the DH-4 as a twin seat bomber which saw service in WWI. The U.S. Postal Service modified the aircraft to be flown from the rear cockpit and installed a watertight mail compartment in place of the forward cockpit. DH-4's were the mainstay of the USPS air fleet right through 1927 when service passed its last airmail routes to private contractors.

This pilot is enjoying an incredibly good day for flying as he travels up New York's Hudson River and over one of the many New York Central Railway trains headed north to Albany and points beyond. Flying by any standard was a risky profession in this early era of flight, so to be aloft on a day such as this was a truly revered experience.
