Link of the day: Transatlantic Mail by Air

Long before the transatlantic diablog was online there were some ways to send information across the Atlantic. That was mostly done by airmail. Remember those times? If not check out transatlanticmailbyair.wordpress.com.

“[It’s] a study of Trans Atlantic airmails circa 1928-1940.  This study will encompass, rates, routes, crashes, destinations and origins. “

Below a photo of an original letter from back then. Some stamps required in those times…

For some original footage of historical transatlantic flights watch this video uploaded by epmorris.
