  • Original Airship Roma Photo

    SKU: 22-ZEPP-2

     Vintage 5x7", sepia-tone of the Roma with a large crowd surrounding.  Likely at her arrival in the U.S.  About fair; looks like someone put the photo face down on a gravel road and ran over it.  Surprisingly, the image is still  quite nice but the price reflects this problem.  A bargain, I think.
