Description: JUPP WIERTZ (1881-1939) 2 DAYS TO EUROPE / HAMBURG - AMERICAN LINE. 1936.
32 1/2x23 1/4 inches, 82 1/2x59 cm. Eschebach & Schaefer, Leipzig.
Condition A-: minor creases in margins and image; tears and abrasions at edges; metal strips at top and bottom. Paper.
The Hindenburg Zeppelin (LZ-129) pictured soaring over the skyscrapers of Manhattan. A gap in the cloudy sky illuminates the spire of the Empire State Building, whose tower was originally conceived as a dirigible docking mast. This idea was eventually abandoned when the winds proved too unpredictable at 1,350 feet above the city. The Hindenburg's illustrious career was terminated on May 6, 1937, when she burst into flames upon landing in Lakehurst, New Jersey. This version advertises the flight from New York to Europe; a separate version promotes "In 2 days to North America." Fly Now! p. 49 (var).
