This vintage postcard advertises Eastern Airlines. The company has been defunct since 1991. It was established in 1926 and became a major United States air carrier. This postcard was used as part of a clever advertising campaign. Passengers on Eastern flights were given postcards, like this one, and told that if they wrote to someone, the airlines would mail the card for them. Instructions can be seen on the line dividing the address and the message on this card. The airliner featured on this postcard is sthe “Golden Falcon” (DC-7B). The plane was manufactured by the Douglas Aircraft Company between 1953 and 1958. This postcard was postmarked in Cleveland, Ohio. The postmark was stamped in 1958. This postcard is in good condition (see scans). SOLD
