Amelia Earhart Inflating a Rubber Lifeboat

(Original Caption) "Free Air" as long as she can stay aloft in trans-ocean flying for Amelia Earhart, but if forced down she was prepared for the worst with this tiny rubber lifeboat. The famed aviatrix demonstrated it before taking for the East from Los Angeles "to see it would have worked." Inflated by a tiny cylinder, the boat has to be kept pumped up by hand.
