[A biplane]

Item is a photograph. Notes written on the back include:
"This is an early Vancouver plane, one of the first after the war. It fell into English Bay, and drowned the son of a clergyman. I think his name was Brenton.
It was recovered and rebuilt by defunct 'Dominion Airways' of Vanc'r, and, in 1939, was stated to be lying, disused, at Sea Island Airport.
I think, at time it fell, that it belonged to a firm called Canada Aircraft Ltd, Vancouver, about 1919 or 1920"
