Graf ZEPPELIN 1934 TIMETABLE LZ no.2 to South America .... including the Original Clara Adams Autograph




"She was obviously aware of the historical significance of what she was doing," said Friedman, "because she had the foresight to autograph anything she could get her hands on -- luggage tags, tickets, fragments of Zeppelin skin, post cards. On one particular flight, she posted more than six pounds of mail."

Waiting for the Graf Zeppelin, Campo de Mayo, Argentina, 30 June 1934 (original press photo)


Backside:
"Toilettes mañaneras pusieron en Campo de Mayo, suelo acostumbrado al paso rudo del soldado, una nota asombro y de gracia. Estas dos jóvenes hace rato que esperan, y mientras una de ellas se dispone al retoque, la otra inquiere en el cileo el rumbo del Zeppelin."
