Description: Outstanding and historically important real-life photo postcard showing Chamberlin being mobbed by the German public soon after setting a long-distance flying record in 1927. 4 x 6 inches, boldly signed directly above his image and dated 1940. There is a brief biography of Chamberlin printed on the back. Small creases at the corners; still very good condition.

I can't begin to thank you for the personal care and attention you all gave to me on Saturday - when I came to Argosy during your tech breakdown. I love the four marvelous books I purchased for my nephew and the generous wrapping you provided. I shall always remember the experience and look forward to seeing you again soon. With appreciation! - Leigh C.
