Isn’t this ad a beauty? You can feel that 1936 Lockheed 10 Electra zipping across Delta’s Trans-Southern Route from Ft. Worth, Texas, to Charleston, South Carolina.
This ad is the latest donation to the Delta Air Transport Heritage Museum, and I couldn’t believe it when I saw it! It’s in color, great condition and from the 1930s – don’t see that very often. Before this donation, we had only 5 color Delta ads from the 1930s. Now we have 6, thanks to retired Delta mechanic Robert “Bob” Walker, who by the way, used to work in the aircraft maintenance hangers that now house the Delta Museum.
Bob brought the ad in last week, and told me all about rescuing it from the trash after a Delta department decided to do some spring cleaning one day. Thank you, Bob!
The ad is painted on cardstock, and has a folding hinge on back to position it upright. It was intended for display on an airport ticket counter, hotel counter or tabletop.
