Hot Air Balloon | Alberto Santos-Dumont / H. G. Wells / William Wordsworth / Ray Davies / Nadar

Müller & Kadeder, Tin-Carousel Airship, hand-painted 

"There's something in a flying horse, 
There's something in a huge balloon."

William Wordsworth 

"To propel a dirigible balloon through the air is 
like pushing a candle through a brick wall."

Alberto Santos-Dumont

Hot Air Balloon Toy

"Man can go up against gravitation in a balloon, 
and why should he not hope that ultimately he 
may be able to stop or accelerate his drift along 
the Time-Dimension, or even turn about and 
travel the other way."

H. G. Wells

"We're out of control on this loony balloon, 
barely missing the other planets and stars."

Ray Davies

"We have had bird's-eye views seen by mind's eye 
imperfectly. Now we will have nothing less than 
the tracings of nature itself, reflected on the plate."
