Watch 1920s “City Symphonies” Starring the Great Cities of the World: From New York to Berlin to São Paulo | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it

Um Dia fui ao Cinema: Miss Todd [Curta]

Quase todas as pessoas interessadas pela aeronáutica reconhecem os nomes dos pioneiros da aviação, como os irmãos Wright, Blériot, e outros.

É por isso mais que justo que esta curta em animação nos dê a conhecer esta fantástica senhora, que há mais de um século já tornava realidade os seus sonhos de voar bem acima do solo.
