Lot #316
Charles Lindbergh

This lot has closed

Estimate: $600+


Vintage matte-finish 5.75 x 7.75 photo of Lindbergh in a handsome three-quarter-length pose, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "To Daniel M. Vinda, Charles A. Lindbergh, 6/23/31.” Double-matted with an artistic image of his Ryan monoplane to an overall size of 12.75 x 19.25. In fine condition.

In the summer of 1931, Lindbergh and his wife flew from Long Island to Nome, Alaska and from there to Siberia, Japan, and China. The route was not available for commercial service until after World War II, as prewar aircraft lacked the range to fly from Alaska to Japan nonstop, and the United States had not officially recognized the Soviet government. In China the couple volunteered to help in disaster investigation and relief efforts for the Central China flood of 1931.
