Thomas Pigeon
This hydroplane was built for Reginald deNoyes Thomas, a WWI naval aviator and director of the Thomas-Pigeon Aeroplane Corporation of Boston, Massachusetts.

The fuselage is spruce and ash ribboned all-wood construction with mahogany planking.  This type of construction was said to insure safety, long life and reliability in all weather conditions.  

This early biplane was built about 1920.  Somewhat of a mystery, not much is known about its model, date of manufacture or creator.  

The engine is mounted over the fuselage and below the upper wing.  The only control is a joystick, and it may never have been completed.    

In 1914, the Thomas Company advertised aviation for sport, war and business.  Their earlier models, the B-4 and B-5 were used as trainers for civilian pilots seeking thrills, speed and fortune.
