Post Bob Fogg and the Golden Age of Aviation lecture

The Lake Winnipesaukee Museum is hosting a presentation, “Bob Fogg and the Golden Age of Aviation”, Featuring Jane Rice on Wednesday, August 2nd, at 7 P.M.

“Bob Fogg and New Hampshire’s Golden Age of Aviation” tells the story of the Granite State’s true pioneer of aviation, and includes many previously unpublished images of airplanes and aviators of the 1920s and 1930s. Bob Fogg brought aviation to Concord and the Weirs in the early ‘20s and he and his pilots introduced flying to a whole generation that grew up in that time period. For those interested in the history of the Lakes Region, it describes the seaplane base that was a prominent feature of the Weirs boardwalk from 1923 until the early 1950s, and the planes that hopped passengers from many lakeside resorts throughout New Hampshire. Classic Wacos, Travel Airs, Beech Staggerwings and Sikorsky amphibians that once plied the blue skies over Lake Winnipesaukee come to life again in the pages of this fascinating history.

This lecture is part of our summer lecture series. These talks held throughout the summer and into the fall focus on New Hampshire and the Lakes Region’s history and are presented by local historians and lakes region enthusiasts. Our next lecture after “Bob Fogg and the Golden Age of Aviation” will be “Lakes Region and Pemigewasset Valley Stories” by Daniel Heyduk.

This event is free for Lake Winnipesaukee Historical Society members, for non-members there is a $5 fee. We are located on Route 3 in Weirs Beach, next to Funspot. Please RSVP to 366-5950 or email info@lwhs.us.
