Photograph of dirigible race in the Dominguez Air Meet, Dominguez Field, Los Angeles, 1910. Two football-shaped zeppelins race across the skies, flying at low altitude. Each of them has single pilots. The pilots stand on a skeletal structure consisting of metal bars that is attached to the balloon with wires. Spectators (or judges) stand below on the plain field watching the zeppelins race. Further in the sky is a hot-air balloon with the phrase "all in the Examiner" painted on it.
