12em Meeting de Monaco : Maquette. ca. 1920.
A biplane soars above, a speedboat zooms below: this is a maquette for a poster advertising the 12th Auto, Boat and Plane Meeting in Monaco. It's a relatively obscure show, but a documentary film was made of the 6th Meeting, in 1909; it's likely the War intervened during the originally scheduled 12th annual meet, and was picked up after the Armistice.
