  • Eastern Air Transport Curtiss Condor Press Photo - circa 1930

    SKU: 21-P-416

    Original 8x10 b&w photo a Curtiss Condor landing over parked cars, likely at an air show.  It appears that the billboard advertising EAT has been "photoshopped" (no such thing in the 1930's!) into the negative.  Press release from the airline on the reverse speaks to stats on this "Pride" of the Eastern Airlines Fleet, passengers transported, etc.  Very good.
