Horatio Barber was an excellent self-promoter. Due to the nature of the man and the nature of his businesses, his name was often in the news. While he worked as a stockbroker in Canada, he submitted media releases and large, wordy advertisements to the newspapers around the world.
Later, while involved in aviation in the UK, he was the subject of numerous articles in the aviation magazines of the day. Barber is also the author of several “how to” books related to flight.
Today, Barber’s name is back in the news! We are excited to announce that Airy Somethings, the Extraordinary Life of Aviation Pioneer Horatio Barber is now available online!
Below is a sample of some of the headlines that Mr. Barber generated as he travelled the world from 1892 to 1909 before he returned to the UK to work in aviation. Click on the images to launch the viewer. Feel free to comment below, or join us on Facebook!
