- As a child, Alfred was a sickly person.
- He was so frail that his parents were advised by the Doctor to move to the country.
- He was too weak to attend school and so was tutored at home by his Uncle.
What is so amazing is that he overcame his weaknesses, learned to fly, took pictures in the most horrendous storms (his preferred conditions), crash landed nine times (having to have his larynx removed after one of them), yet took the most stunning pictures of aircraft, clouds, ships, waves and assorted panoramas.
