It came from one of the French periodicals found at Gallica.

Further to the previous references to Mr Bodiansky, I came across this site, http://p-d-m.livejournal.com/461717.html, which features both the Pics of the Type 20 which came up in the E Bay sale and also the Type 30 Seaplane shot. I also noticed in the text that it mentions that there are doubts whether the Type 16 'came into metal' as it so eloquently puts it, making it sound like that was a paper project only.

Also amongst my trawl for Bodiansky 20 pics I came across this one on http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php/17-The-Ongoing-Mystery-Aircraft-Thread-Part-Deux?s=a091abf6f6cf154d96371e68ef1c4aa6. Although of poor quality, at least it is a good side view of the aircraft.

I posted that image on the Ongoing Mystery Aircraft thread on the SOH forum website. I sourced the photograph from Les Ailes and not this website. It would have been polite if VictorXL188 had credited me. And you, Hesham, ought to be a little more circumspect and less ready to make a vast generalisation when, at least on this occasion, there is no substance to it.
