"Mail Pilot" (1933) - Airport Sign Pencil Background (7 of 20)

As a pilot, I tended to pick up items with an aerospace theme. The 1933 film "Mail Pilot" caught my attention and I ended picking up a number of items from the film. I thought I share the group with you.

This is a close-up of the sign at the entrance to the airport (also shown in the large pan background). Not one of the more interesting pieces, but since it went with the pan background I thought it would make a nice addition...

----- DATABASE NOTES -----

From “Mail Pilot” (1933). A view of the front gate to the airport with a sign saying “Airport.” The same gate seen in the large pan pencil sketch (SeqID-0075), but the title on the sign in the pan says “Air Mail Hanger.” [Image: 12"W x 8-9/16"H; Frame: 21.25"W x 17.75"H; 2-hole] Acquired 1991.
