1910 Menu 1st Flight Manchester London

A menu at the Savoy Hotel London on April 30th 1910 to celebrate the first flight from Manchester to London by Louis Paulhan. Louis Paulhan was the winner of the Daily Mail £10,000 prize for the first such flight. The menu is signed by two people one of whom I think may be Loius Paulhan. My grandfather was a cameraman (cine and still) and was invited to such lunches including for example to the lunch celebrating the launch of The Britannic (sister ship to The Titanic) for which I also have a signed menu. My grandfather was also the official kinematographer on the 1922 tour of India by HRH The Prince of Wales.
