"Hi C.H.thumbnail.jpg   .... from 1910! As close to an enclosed canopy as so far found.                                       Cheers."

"Hi C.H.,           Just to resolve any ambiguity that may have been in my reply regarding the SE5, the cockpit had glazing i.e. a glorified, transparent wind deflector but not a full, enclosed over-head canopy whether…"

"Understand that you are looking to a Steampunk art project using pre1920s COCKPIT styling, but utilizing a kind of sliding CANOPY look. The second sidecar image looks like the best bet to adapt to an early aviation style. Rivets and struts would be…"

"Hi C.H., not sure where this is going but I'm not trying to duplicate a WW1 fighter, it is after all, an art project. You keep referring to fighters visa-vie open canopies. I think you mean open cockpits. However, if you do refer to…"

Sliding-Canopy (pre-1920) Images Wanted.....

Hi, Can anyone help?    I am doing a small SteamPunk art project and am searching for period-correct images of sliding canopies e.g. like a fighter aircraft. However to have historical integrity it must be period-correct (i.e. NO post-1920 offerings), i.e. pre-1920.   I vaguely recall some years ago seeing a picture of such a feature applied to a motorcycle sidecar but I can no longer remember where.
