        OTTOMAR ANTON (1895-1976) IN 2 DAYS ACROSS THE ATLANTIC / DEUTSCHE ZEPPELIN - REEDEREI.
        33x23 1/4 inches, 83 3/4x59 cm. Mühlmeister and Johler, Hamburg.
        Condition B+: minor losses at edges; creases, abrasions, scuffing and light rippling in image.
        The Hindenburg, en route over the Atlantic Ocean, is cleverly juxtaposed with an old clipper ship on the sea below to emphasize the speed of the new airship. Curiously, the Zeppelin (which, by 1937, was being used as a propaganda tool as well as a means of transportation) was known to have two prominently painted swastikas on its tailfins and it appears that way in the German version of this poster, but here only one is depicted. This is the English version. Airlines p. 37, Crouse p. 27 (var).
