Aircraft and Boats
In this section I've posted some unique glimpses of people interacting with airplanes and boats in the 20s, 30, and 40s. As with the others, these are scenes you won't see in news pictures of the day, but rather snapshots from people's daily lives.
Given that this was during the Depression, its remarkable the amount of money and interest in travel, as aviation was developing at a rapid pace.
