This image was taken in December 1921, just as barnstorming began to sweep the newly airborne country. The State Library and Archives of Florida captions the scene:
Pilot flying one of Mabel Cody's planes above "Sig" Haugdahl, in his Frontenac automobile. Stuntman Louis "Bugs" McGowan later transferred from the car to the plane. Mabel Cody herself was not officially a pilot.
