Pictures of the M-1
This is the page of my web site dedicated to my family's history.  You will see pictures mostly of My Great Uncle Vern's original planes.  These planes were once mail carriers.  Uncle Vern was one of the founders of the Pacific Air Transport, one of the three airlines that were combined to form today's United Airlines.  He made his money panning for gold in Alaska.  He married Julia Louise Johnson, which was my Great Great Great Aunt.  

The detail on the fin lists each of the stops on the mail route between Seattle and Los Angeles, the circuit that Pacific Air Transport used its M-1s for in the 1920s.
This is 2 things...An ink blotter and a copy of the mail schedule.
This is a front view of the renewed plane.
This is the cockpit of the fixed up M-1.
