Persuasive Essay Topics of Today and Yesterday: The Aeroplane Comes To Houston

Persuasive Essay Topics of Today and Yesterday is living proof that there really is nothing new under the sun. Witness the strange case of Houston, Texas, flight center of tomorrow...and yesterday...


The World of the Now

As you may know, Houston, Texas has been on the flight map big time, since the days of President Lyndon B. Johnson, of Texas, when it was made the technical flight center for NASA. The moment the space shuttle leaves (left) the ground, it becomes the property of Houston who talks it along and monitors its progress. Well and good. But did you know that Houston was a flight center long before it was a flight center?


The World of the Then

Historical material from the Jewish Herald of Houston. Rewritten, keeping the essential essence.

From an article entitled THE EVOLUTION OF THE FLYING MACHINE INDUSTRY IN THE UNITED STATES - Aeroplane Factory Planned for Houston

The first aeroplane factory in the South will soon be built near Houston by two Houston engineers. One of these is a graduate aeronautical engineer from the Royal Polytechniquc of Berlin. He is a young German who visited France, Austria and Russia to make practical studies of the best types of heavier than air flying machines. The other is a young American engineer who has been studying aeroplane design details and construction for the past two years and a half. Previously to this he engaged in general engineering for several years. These young men have a good proposition it seems to us.

The aeroplane is coming into general use very rapidly, more rapidly even than the auto mobiles. One year ago there was scarcely a firm in the United States that made aeroplanes while today there are more than thirty incorporated companies with a capitalization of 3,025,000 making aeroplanes and accessories in the East, North and West. These figures are astonishing in view of the short time that has elapsed since the aeroplane has been in practical success.

Thirteen factories in the United States now make a specialty of light weight engines for aeroplanes. Six factories make nothing but aeroplane propellers. Three automobile tire manufacturers now make aeroplane tires regularly in standard sizes. More than twenty factories now make aeroplane fittings cloth and accessories. Judging by the selling prices of aeroplanes tho profits in their manufacture must be large.

Mr Swanson president of the Edison Phonograph Co of Houston who is just back from New York stated "Before I left Houston I had a vague idea that it would be many years be fore the aeroplane would come into general use if it ever did but, in New York I found everybody gone mad over aeroplanes the Vanderbilts, Goulds, Astors and others of the prominent men there taking a leading part. George F Harris a practical aviator of New York who is spending the summer in Houston in an article in Tuesdays Post reports substantially the same thing.

There is no other business today that is expanding more rapidly than the manufacture of aeroplanes and especially is there a good opening here in the South.

The proposition of establishing a factory in Houston is worthy of all support since it will not only be one more industry for our city but a very profitable one for its stockholders and from our personal investigation we believe It will bring rich returns to the investor being a perfectly safe and legitimate investment in a business expanding by leaps and bounds.


Here at Persuasive Essay Topics of of Today and Yesterday we're mostly pleased to bring you the great news about the wonders of flying. Folks from 1910 have mostly gone underground, but once they were flying high and rocketing around at tens of miles per hour. Actually, walking wasn't crowded, and only the most foolhardy would even think of lifting off the ground in one of those goofy looking flying machines. My how times change! Just 4 or 5 months before this article was written, the author, if he looked up, saw Halley's Comet and Mark Twain went toes up.
