This is a picture of the pilot seat of the Cambridge University Biplane, an article about it is published in Flight May 8, 1909 [The picture is in the 1909 Flight printed in reserve]



The caption of this picture gives -

"The pilot, in this case Mr. H. H. Franklin, sits in the wire-suspended “chair” marked ”Tea”, and controls the lateral stability of the machine by the vertical pole held at the moment by Mr. A. E. Lowy, co-designer and builder."
