After four years, he earned enough money to send to Italy for Rosalia and their daughter, who was born after he had left for the United States. Giuseppe hoped that his five sons would become fishermen. DiMaggio recalled that he would do anything to get out of cleaning his father's boat, as the smell of dead fish nauseated him. Giuseppe called him "lazy" and "good-for-nothing." DiMaggio did not finish his education at Galileo High School and instead worked odd jobs including hawking newspapers, stacking boxes at a warehouse and working at an orange juice plant.".

[EPHEMERA] [AVIATION] [PHOTOGRAPHS]
Group of Four Aviation Photographs from 1910 (Apparently from Flugfeld in Puchheim)

The reverse of the photographs give basic descriptions, including the place -- Puchheim and the Aviators. The grpou of for prints come with an autograph (handwritten) statement from the owner giving them to a friend for his aviation collection. The aviators include: Emil Jeannin, Dr. Otto Lindpaintner and Gustav Otto. While Emil Jeannin is listed as one of the five pilots engaged for this race, the other three aviators were apparently running in the same circles / groups and likely brought their planes with them. "The Munich "Akademie für Aviatik" was founded in 1909, mainly by members of the Royal Bavarian Automobile Club. Its main aim was promoting aviation, particularly by flying dirigibles and other flying machines. This included building an airfield with all necessary installations, but also creating a library and a museum and the awarding of prizes for competitions. Suitable grounds for an airfield were found in the village of Puchheim, 15 kilometres west of central Munich, where 76 hectares of moorland was bought and leased. A modern and completely equipped airfield with a two-kilometre race course was built. It was decided to celebrate the opening of the airfield by organizing an "aviation week" of five days in the end of May, starting less than a week after the Berlin-Johannisthal spring meeting. Five pilots were engaged. Emil Jeannin, Baron Pierre de Caters and Ellery von Gorrissen came directly from the Berlin meeting, where the two former had been very successful. They were accompanied by Belgian Jules Tyck on a Blériot and local Munich man Simon Brunnhuber on one of the Antoinettes bought by Walther Huth, who would later start the Albatros company."
