Piper PA-12S Super Cruiser Float        NC7874H            (c/n 12-777)


                                        A PA-12S skimming across Long Island Sound out from Edo's plant at College Point, Long
                                        Island.   Piper (some other manufacturers also) had the annoying trait of painting the registration
                                        number just above the horizontal stabilizer, which made photography of Piper craft of that period
                                        difficult to take and still get the identity of the bird in the frame.  Fortunately, on the original print
                                        NC7874H is clearly  visible under the port wing.  This photograph came from the Edo Float
                                        Corporation in 1950.
