  • Western Air Express Runs Into Barbed Wire Fence - 1929

  • Mabel Embarks! - 1929

    SKU: 22-P-166

     Vintage photo, 8x10", b&w (sepia tone).  No press release but carries a rubber stamp of the N.E.A. dated June 20, 1929.  In pencil is the name of the women starting an adventure:  Mabel Hildebrandt.  It appears as though she is boarding a Universal Airlines aircraft.  The date would be correct because Universal existed for just about a year in 1928-29.  It eventually merged over and over until it became American, I believe.  Excellent condition.
