[Akron, OH], 1908. The photograph of Gamater in his plane ready for take off is 4 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches. It is affixed to a sheet of thick black craft paper. The long manuscript caption below the photo reads: 1908 Built by John Garameter and George Muckensturm. First Trial Flight Portage Country Club, Diagonal Road. 2 cylinder gasoline engine. Lift; 6 ft for 150 ft. Photo taken by Geo Muckensturm. John Gameter in cock pit. Fine condition. This photo of two rank amateurs building their own plane and flying it was taken only 5 years after the Wright Brothers historic flight. The Portage Country Club is in Akron, Ohio. Many of the early developments in flight took place in Ohio. And the field on which Gameter's plane sits certainly looks like a golf range. Goodrich employee and golf enthusiast, John Gameter, invented the automatic golf-ball winding machine, which used two threads simultaneously and mechanised the whole ball-making process. A born tinkerer.
