From 1893, Lawrence Hargrave began investigations that led him to his second great invention: a box kite that lifted him from the beach at Stanwell Park, attached to the ground only by a piano wire. Much of the progress that led to manned flying machines can be traced to Lawrence and his box kite. Join the City of Sydney Historical Association and Michael Adams from the Lawrence Hargrave Society, to learn more about the father of international flight.
