The Airship Akron

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett




I found a nice little treasure trove of airship postcards today. This one is a reproduction of a 1911 card depicting the Airship Akron. This ill-fated ship went up in flames over New Jersey on July 12, 1912 during an attempt at a transatlantic crossing.

More to come over the next few days.
