ANTON, Ottomar (1895–1976). Hamburg–Amerika Linie / 2 Days Across the Atlantic. Hamburg: Mühlmeister and Johler, ca. 1936. Color lithograph depicting the Hindenburg passenger airship flying above a clipper ship on the Atlantic Ocean, emphasizing the swifter service of travel by air than by sea. The Hindenburg made 17 round trips across the Atlantic in 1936. On its first North American round trip the following season, it crashed while attempting to dock in Lakehurst, New Jersey, killing 36 people, in probably the most famous airship disaster in history. The Hindenburg was known to have displayed two painted swastikas on its tailfins, but in this poster only one is shown. Framed, 32 x 22” (sight area). Vertical tear to central portion of image, expertly repaired, few tiny spots of restoration at edges. B+/B. Not examined out of frame.
