"Whitemarsh Hall" - an autogiro proves its worth.....

   Above the E. T. Stotesbury estate at Whitemarsh, near Philadelphia, Pa., an autogiro proves its worth as a place-to-place air vehicle. After selecting a likely spot in which to land, it sinks slowly and almost vertically to the ground. When leave-taking time comes, the host speeds his parting guest, serene in the knowledge that his tree-tops and turrets will be undamaged, for the giro rises at a steep angle into the air when it departs.

    Amazing photo of the craft flying over the long gone Whitemarsh Hall. But we can still visit Cairnwood and Glencairn, two gilded age mansions nearby that are open to the public and maintained with loving care.
