The Top Shelf

Today in history, Amelia Earhart, who became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic, arrived in San Antonio on February 26, 1936.  After her arrival, she was taken to the Alamo where under the voices of a church choir singing “The Eyes of Texas”, she was presented with the six flags of Texas.  The next day she lectured at the Thomas Jefferson High School on, “Flying for Fun.”  The following images taken from the San Antonio Light Collection shows Amelia Earhart attending the welcoming ceremony at the Alamo.
