Wop May and George Gorman were unable to pay the rent on
The City of Edmonton JN-4
because business was slow. They returned the Jenny to the city
in 1924. The aircraft was placed in storage, with its wings
removed, in the horse barn on the exhibition grounds.
In 1926, Peter Lerbekmo bought The City of Edmonton,
and restored it to flying condition. To obtain a share in the
aircraft, Ted Reynolds agreed to repair and install the engine.
The plane successfully flew a number of flights in July 1928.
In October 1928, Ted Reynolds gave Lerbekmo his 1927 Star
automobile in exchange for full ownership of the Curtiss JN-4
they worked on together. Reynolds flew The City of Edmonton
for several years before placing it in storage.
