How far we've come in just over 100 years. Unfortunately there was no additional info accompanying these great photos of an early flight in California. I've done some research on early planes and aviation in CA, and given the album in which these photos were found, they were most likely taken between 1909 and 1912.
On my mother's side, in about 4 generations, we've gone from the horse and carriage to self driving cars and expectations of a multi-planetary existence. It's amazing how far we've come in a short time. The best part is that it's only the beginning. To steal a line from Drake and Future: what a time to be alive.
