Salvador Dalí by Willy Rizzo for his Funny Facescollection, 1966.(via)
“Salvador Dalí was an icon of buffoonery, and something of a trail-blazer when it comes to funny faces. The first to wax his mustache, he used the photo shoot to play with what fascinated him the most about himself. He would do anything provoke, shock, and make people laugh.”

Pilot William C. Hopson of the U.S. Mail Service in Winter Flying Clothing
Regularly scheduled airmail service first began in the United States on May 15, 1918. “Wild Bill” Hopson remains one of the more colorful of the early airmail pilots. A former cab driver who survived several close calls (once landing upside down in a cornfield), he perished when his plane crashed during a storm in 1928. Check out his “Pilot Story” at the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum.
