Photograph, taken on September 22, 1928, showing pilot Tex Rankin standing in the back seat of his plane after his return to Portland from an air race.

Above are shown Rankin, Mrs. Rankin, the three Rankin youngsters, Carol and Alba Barba.” The photographs accompanied a story, headlined “Rankin and Jinx Cat Back Home; Everybody Glad.” The Journal reported that Rankin had placed fifth in the race.
