planesPeople, Places, Planes: Aviation, Folk Art & Community, by Elly Shodell.

On Long Island between 1910 and 1955, the airplane defined the economic and social life of the community. Today, people who grew up with the Air Age and made their living in the aircraft industries have reached the age of retirement and remembering. Their leisure activities now serve to keep them connected with the aviation community of the past and hold out the hope of connection with a community of the future. This book offers a unique insight into the aviation world that inhabited Long Island for so many years.
