The caption said this is Wiley Post before he lost his eye, but I actually think he’s wearing the glass eye he used when he wasn’t flying. (The pressure of the plane made it necessary to wear the eye patch.)

On July 22, 1933 Wiley Post became the first person to fly solo around the world, traveling 15,596 miles in 7 days, 18 hours and 45 minutes.
In this staged photo for a New York City newspaper, Mae Post is shown at her husband Wiley’s side after his grueling solo flight around the globe.
