United Airlines. A Gay Geography of the Main Line.

By UNITED AIRLINES) White, Ruth Taylor (mapmaker).

United Airlines.. No date. Ca. late 1930s.. Booklet, color illustrated on each page with a pictographic / pictorial map, unpaginated (16 pages including covers), 10 1/2 x 5 inches unfolding to 10 1/2 x 10 inches. Small chip to lower corner of back cover, otherwise very good condition. It is likely that United Airlines commissioned Ruth Taylor White to illustrate this following the success of her children's book publication "Our U.S.A. A Gay Geography" (first published 1935). Turning the booklet's pages you follow the route of United's Main Line Airway and its tributaries from the west to the east coast with colorful map with pictographs of activities, industries, landmarks and important events on the upper part of each page and text information beneath it. The last line of the booklet is an invitation to "retain this 'Gay Geography' as a souvenir of your flight." .

Douglas DC-4 Facts Regarding The World's Largest Commercial Land Plane.

By DOUGLAS AIRCRAFT DC-4 PROMOTIONAL BROCHURE)

Santa Monica, California.: Douglas Aircraft Co.. . Pamphlet 9 x 4 inches opening to three double-sided panels with descriptive text relating to the aircraft, evidently a prototype never followed through with. Brochure folded horizontally at middle — not as issued, otherwise good condition. Small illustration in open brochure provides cut-away view of the plane's interior. Text states "Main cabin 41 ft. long by 10 ft. 9 in. wide by 7 ft. 6 in. high. Forty lounge chairs are installed in pairs on each side of the center aisle. These make up into single or double beds. Sleeping accommodations for 32 passengers are provided, 12 in comfortable upper births. All births…have individual windows." As pictured on the cover and in the brochure's cut-away illustration, the "3-tail" configuration at the airplane's rear, plus upper birth windows noted in the descriptive text, indicate an airplane quite different from photos of operational DC-4s, hence a pre-war date of publication is indicated. Modifications to the original design saw a single tail replacing the unsatisfactory "3-tail" configuration and the elimination of the upper bank of windows. A scarce brochure presumably pre-dating the DC-4s that went directly into military service with the outbreak of WW II. .
