File:Howard Hughes.jpg

Howard Hughes "standing in front of his new Boeing Army Pursuit Plane" (Boeing 100A) in Inglewood, California in the 1940s.

The black "halo" is presumably intended to make the head stand out better. (Not uncommon at the time for photos intended to be reproduced via low resolution newsprint wire photos)

The photo is from the Library of Congress, specifically reproduction number LC-USZ62-63333. The library says "No copyright found; checked by staff December 2000."
