Photograph of the first airship, Gelatine, in Vancouver, Washington, ca.1905. The dirigible consists of a football-shaped balloon with wires holding up the frame of the ship. Throngs of people gather around and beneath the flying airship that is about to take off (or land?). Trees are visible in the background.
