Photo # 15 -- Angela Magney writes that her great-grandfather, E. H. Duffy, flew Curtiss Jennies for the U.S. Mail in 1924, but our records show that he was not a pilot with the U.S. Air Mail Service.  Is this plane a Jenny?  What airmail service could he have flown for in Long Beach, California?   Time and place would be appreciated. E-mail answer to: Air Mail Pioneers

It LOOKS kinda like a Jenny, with a good ol' V-8 engine (OX-5?), but is the engine front / radiator right?  Not a Laird Swallow (an improved Jenny knock-off), since their radiator was round, but that streamlined turtledeck behind the pilot's head doesn't seem to be a Jenny trait (maybe I'm way wrong.)  Perhaps the Standard J-1 (the next-most-common plane in the Jenny category)?
