Lost in the tragic story of the Hindenburg is the acclaim and popularity of the monster ship during it's first year of service (1936) before it burst into flames in the worst disaster in aviation history. Here is the beautiful ship after arriving in the United States on it's maiden voyage across the Atlantic! Although not dated, this photo is from May 17, 1936, and the artistic image is dominated by the huge swastika flags on the tail rudders. Issued by Brown Brothers and stamped on the back, this is only the second image from the Hindenburg's maiden voyage we have ever seen and this is a beauty. Photo has a few light corner creases and some mild handling wear, but otherwise it presents well.
