Nice photos there - I like the two showing the Bleriot fuselage next to the packing crate and horse-drawn wagon it was delivered on
I think the horse drawn wagon is loaded with the crate containing the wings. The tail of the fuselage would probably be hooked on to the tail of the cart for the trip from the station (at which both the fuselage and wings had been unloaded from the train that delivered them.
I note from one of the captions that the DM thinks the first powered flight took place in 1906!
