I scanned an old photo showing my late uncle & aunt (far left) going off for a holiday on the Ventnor Flier. In those days it would have cost them a lot of money to fly and we were a fairly poor family. They must have saved for ages to do it. They were wonderful to me and my sister - when our Mum left us they sacrificed a lot to step in and bring us up, along with our dear Dad.
The creases have been photoshopped out.

Wonderful old shot! :-)
Thos planes have a big place in Icelandic flight history, by the way.
It´s a De Havilland Rapide. (In use by Flugfélag Íslands (lit.: "The flight company of Iceland") in the late 40´s).

Best regards,
Karl Trausti from Iceland
