These old airline travel postcards are so cool. With a little frame this would fit into almost any decor. Only us macho guys would know that the Condor, with only some small modifications, was a top notch Luftwaffe maritime patrol aircraft, flying long-range reconnaissance and was used as an anti-shipping/maritime bomber aircraft. It saw early success as a commerce raider and was later used as a transport. This last role was not optimal for its characteristics and a few were even flown into the Stalingrad pocket with emergency supplies. This last function was almost a suicide run for this plane. But this is a lovely postcard and it looks to have been mailed in 1938 from Argentina. As it was used it has the personality of having a message but has seen use through the mail and so has some light creasing and corner wear. Very pretty postcard.
