I have a couple of old postcards where the standard tourist shot of a town has been spiced up with an airplane or airship flying overhead.

This one was the cornerstone of my Esperanto collection. It features a zeppelin flying over Rüstringen in Oldenburg, Germany (now part of the city of Wilhelmshaven).




And here's an old-timey aeroplane flying over Pardubice in Bohemia, Austria-Hungary (now in the Czech Republic). The combination of the photo, the Esperanto inscription, and the extraordinary handwriting made this a must-buy.




Does anyone else here have similar postcards? (They don't need to be written in Esperanto!)

You are aware that the aircraft was implanted on the original photo by old time photo manipulation, after. Right?

It's pretty obvious in the case of the airplane. I don't think they would have got such a clear shot of the plane and its propeller, frozen in the moment, if it were really flying overhead.

Thanks for the seaplane!

I was inspired to purchase this at the Brookline NH postcard show last weekend after reviewing the Kelleher Autophilately auction catalog repeatedly...I've always seen blimps as peaceful vehicles, not machines of war.
