Hamburg America Lines In 2 Days Across The Atlantic

  • ca 1936
  • Ottomar Anton
  • 23 x 32 inches ~ (58 x 81 cm)
  • Linen backed

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and gives support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself.

    The price of this poster includes linen backing.

  • Rare and wonderful Hindenburg poster, please note there are only small borders on the bottom and right, none on left or top of poster.

    The LZ 129, the Hindenburg, recognizable by it's small gondola, route the Atlantic Ocean, with a clipper ship sailing below to emphasize the speed of the new airship. The Hindenburg made 17 transatlantic flights in 1936, its only full year of operation. The trip toward Europe could be made in as quickly as two days. The Westward journey took longer, lasting up to three days. It was on her first North American crossing in 1937 that the airship tragically burst into flames while attempting to dock in Lakehurst, New Jersey.

    This is the English version. Airlines p. 37, Crouse p. 27 (var).
