Regular price $30.00

Original vintage b&w press photo, 8x10".  Press release on the back reads: "There she goes, queen of the air lanes.  The $500,000 China Clipper, poised at the Alameda Pan-American base for its first 7982 mile flight to Manila, was snapped over the Golden Gate Bridge in her final test flight."  Release is dated 22 November 1935.  International News Photo rubber stamp on the back.  Interesting to note that the Golden Gate bridge is under construction.  Condition is very good.
