Description


Superlative vintage sepia pearl-finish 10 x 8 photo of Lindbergh clad in a suit and tie and posing with the Spirit of St. Louis in a hangar at the Mexican military base Balbuena, signed in fountain pen, “C. A. Lindbergh, Dec. 23, 1927.” In very good to fine condition, with absent top left corner, a single tack hole to each remaining corner, and a diagonal crease to left border; perimeter flaws could be easily matted out, and the signature itself remains bold and unaffected.

Consignor notes that this photograph was signed for Rafael F. Altamirano, one of Mexico’s first military pilots. As part of a late 1927 goodwill air tour of Latin America following his triumphant transatlantic flight, Lindbergh flew the Spirit of St. Louis to Mexico, a nation to which his then-future father-in-law, financier Dwight Morrow, had recently been appointed as ambassador by Calvin Coolidge. It was during this Mexican trip that Lindbergh met Morrow’s daughter, Anne, whom he would marry in 1929. During the tour Lindbergh also met with Mexican President Plutarco Elias Calles, an occasion that prompted Lindbergh to dress in a suit and tie, attire the aviator seldom chose to wear. A wonderfully appealing photo of the dapperly dressed Lindbergh posing with his world famous single-engine monoplane. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
