Description This image is from the Alternate History section of Victorian Space Age: In 1747 George Herbal piloted the first commercial manned spaceflight from Powell's Mountain, Los Angeles, California. His vehicle reached an altitude of 70 miles and later splashed down as planned in the Pacific Ocean.
Timothy Dooley, Capistrano Beach Member Since December 2012 Artist Statement Welcome to Artwork from the Victorian Space Age and beyond.
These galleries are dedicated to all people who enjoy looking beyond their time and place of our reality. It is my sincere hope that you will enjoy your time here. To that end, at my Victorian Space Age site there is a "Alternate History" where the stories behind these images are posted. Periodically a new article will be posted that will cover an extraordinary event that never happened (at least not yet). In addition (for a general overview) there is a Time Line page that will also be updated as stories from my Alternate History are unveiled. As you go through this site I hope you will enjoy it as much as I appreciate having this opportunity to share it with you.
