The brief (1913-19) but interesting Lawrence-Lewis Aeroplane Co built this stunningly beautiful contraction. The 1916 “A” model was an advanced enclosed cabin -one of the earliest- “wing-warped” sesqui-biplane seaplane. Powered by a 4-cyl Kirkham engine (the latter A-6 model used a Wisconsin 6-cyl) placed in their lower fuselage,the engine drove a upper prop by chain. The story of these lovely seaplanes is quite oscure. The number of aircrafts built or modificaticated and their different configurations are object of debate.
They were sure cooler than a cucumber.
