The harness of the horses is generally very gay, and beautifully ornamented; while the fur robes in which the riders envelope themselves to exclude as much as possible the severity of the cold, are often very costly. There are some choice specimens of all these objects in the Canadian department of the Exhibition.

Christmas Frame ~ Free Vintage Clip Art

by Julie J on November 20, 2014

A sketch of holly and berries, mistletoe, and other designs outline a scroll-type banner in the center of this rectangular shaped vintage Christmas frame. The first version of the frame is a scan of the original title from an article in the December 1900 issue of The Designer magazine. I’ve removed the title for the second version, converted the frame to a black and white clip art image for the third version and removed all but the banner for the fourth version. vintage Christmas frame, holly berries frame, black and white graphics, vintage frame clip art, scroll banner illustrationClick on image to enlarge.

Vintage Biplanes ~ Free Graphics

by Julie J on November 18, 2014

Here are two pages of articles titled, “The Practice and Theory of Aviation – II”. The articles discuss modern aeroplanes (of 1910) and include illustrations of the Wright Biplane and two types of Voisin Biplanes. I scanned these pages from the October 29, 1910 issue of the Scientific American Supplement No. 1817. Part I of this article on biplanes was published in the Scientific American Supplement No. 1816. I don’t own that issue.

One of my adult sons is going to have the original size scans of these pages professionally printed and custom framed for a friend of his who is a pilot/owner of a small plane and vintage plane enthusiast. I love his idea and thought some of you would like to have these original size (10” x 15”) graphics to do something similar, whether for a friend or for your own enjoyment. vintage biplane clip art, wright biplane illustration, voisin biplane graphics, black and white clipart, antique airplane printablevintage biplane clip art, wright biplane illustration, voisin biplane graphics, black and white clipart, antique airplane printableHere are black and white clip art images of the three biplanes from the pages. vintage biplane clip art, wright biplane illustration, voisin biplane graphics, black and white clipart, antique airplane printablevintage biplane clip art, wright biplane illustration, voisin biplane graphics, black and white clipart, antique airplane printablevintage biplane clip art, wright biplane illustration, voisin biplane graphics, black and white clipart, antique airplane printableClick on images to enlarge.
