Kingsford Smith's Southern Cross photographed in a hangar at an unconfirmed location, most likely at Oakland. In three epic flights spread over two years, Southern Cross and Kingsford Smith circumnavigated the globe over Australia. His trans-Pacific flight took off from Oakland in May 1928 and he returned there via London and New York in July 1930. Photographer unknown.
