Flying boat in Toronto, 1921

Larry Milberry, Aviation in Canada, McGraw-Hill Ryerson 1979
The Santa Maria, an Aeromarine 75 "Flying Cruiser" belonging to Therodore L.Tibbs lands in Toronto harbour. The airplane was on a tour of the eastern US leaving Havana en route to Detroit. The Harbour Commission building is in the background. The Aeromarine 75 was the civilian version of the English designed, American-built Felixstowe F5L flying boat.
 Remember, this is only 7 years after this.
