io9 has an article on Robert Condit and his gasoline-powered rocket: The Great Baltimore Space Program of 1928. Many years ago, I reported on a similar article from the November 1928 issue of Modern Mechanics, via Modern Mechanix. You can read the details in either location but for now, you can enjoy the following photo.
