Some entrepreneurial skills on show as airplanes begin to appear in the skies.

“A remarkable advertisement appears on page 5 of this issue, and afford eloquent testimony of the great advance made in recent years in aerial matters.

“Mr William H. Elliott, who visited Horsham with Mr England in a biplane on the 21st, announces passenger flights between Horsham and Shoreham by arrangement.”

(The advert says that the cost would be £9 9s for a single trip and £14 14s return).
