Subject: 1929 UFO Photo?

I recently came across an interesting photograph of a UFO that
is said to have been taken in 1929. The photo is at this URL:


If genuine, it was taken 18 years before Arnold's sighting of
craft shaped like "pie plates" in 1947. The potential
significance of this is obvious.

Does anyone on the list know anything about this photograph or
has anyone physically examined it personally or interviewed its

It seems to me that it wouldn't be too hard to determine whether
or not the photograph is as old as it's supposed to be. If it's
74 years old, the passage of time should have had a noticeable
effect on the quality of the paper as well as the image, which
certainly looks as faded as would be expected in the digital
version. And if the photo is really that old, it would probably
be very difficult for a contemporary hoaxer to add the object to
it without leaving some noticeable traces of tampering.
