Globe & Mail airplane, Island Airport

Photographic proof that about seventy years ago, the Globe & Mail was once cool.

The straight vertical windows on the control tower indicate that this photo was taken prior to the early 1950s, when the tower was upgraded with now-familiar sloping glass windows.  The Grumman G-73 Mallard was only in production from 1946 through 1951, further narrowing the possible date of origin.
