This postcard gives you a glimpse of what air traffic was like at the Atlanta airport in the early 1940s. You can see a 14-passenger Delta Douglas DC-2 up front, and passengers on the second-floor observation deck watching a line of planes loading and unloading in front of the terminal.
The caption on the back of the postcard celebrates Atlanta Municipal Airport as “The ‘Hub of Southern Aviation’–where planes arrive every thirty minutes–and serving seven points of the compass.”
If you would like to see more vintage postcards and photos of Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson International Airport growing through the years into the “world’s busiest airport,” I recommend visiting the new “Atlanta Airport” section of the website Atlanta Time Machine. I think you’ll enjoy your travel back in time through 80+ years of ATL!
