  • Omaha Aero Congress Broadside - 1921

    SKU: 21-AR-12

     Large 11x22" advertising piece for the November 3-5, 1921 Omaha Aero Congress.  Folded laterally three-times, photo collage top half followed by an extensive description of Omaha aviation interest and the various events.  Would frame nicely.  About fair because of frail folds and edge bumps.  This is the only one of these I have encountered.

  • WWI Poster Painting on Board

    SKU: 21-POST-48

     Painting on masonite of a very rare WWI poster.  Very large 48"x60" size.  It's possible this was an artist proof for the poster or done later (more likely).  Some mounting holes along the top margin and some discoloring along the far left edge; else very good.  This is not an amateurish image but a very professional painting.  Quite heavy and it must be picked-up...shipping would be prohibitive, I think; or I might consider some delivery within Michigan or surrounds.

  • Bell Aircraft Union Organizing Broadside - circa 1945

    SKU: 21-MISC-21

     Interesting 8.5x11" flyer urging Bell Aircraft Ordnance, Burlington, Vermont, employees to a union organizing meeting.  Date of the meeting was Nov 7th, year not stated but likely late WWII because of language in the text about "... when they do come back home..."  Lots of inflamatory text about greedy employers, etc.  Printed on newsprint so  likely not many of these survived.  Along with this broadside is a parking diagram that came in the same mailing to employees.  Very good condition.

    SKU: 21-F-1

     Original large 11 x 17" sepia toned lithograph by famous WWI French Artist Henri' Farre.  Carries the French Army Museum stamp in the lower right.  Signed by Farre in pencil to the left of the stamp with crude translation "Hope of the Artist - H.

  • Advertising Poster/Will Rogers Image - circa 1970's

    SKU: 21-POST-46

     Large 11x15" poster for an insurance agency located at Lunken Airport, Cincinnati.  Likely was a calendar at one point but mounted on masonite long ago.  Two drilled holes at the top for hanging with a cord. Image is by George Young and titled at the bottom "Will Rogers...Friend of Aviation".  Very good; looks varnished with slight yellowing.

  • Christofferson San Francisco Advertising Card -1912

    SKU: 21-POST-45

     Large 13 x 10" heavy card stock, advertsing exhibition and passenger flights by Silas Christofferson.  Image in the center is of Christofferson flying the Bolivian Consul General in December 1912.  Included are two original news clips from the San Francisco Examiner describing the flight and picturing the same image as on the card.  Christofferson soon became an aircraft manufacturer and early (if not the first) U.S. commercial pilot flying passengers between San Francisco and Oakland.  Silas died in 1916 in an aircraft accident.  Condition is poor - fair with some missing pieces as shown (condition becomes much less important with other surviving pieces unlikely).  Nicely matted and framed under plexiglas.  Very rare.  Some extra shipping charges may be required. ON HOLD
