Description:

Staple-bound brochure. Folded dimensions of H 22.75cm x L 10cm with unfolded length dimensions of 20cm. 28 pages (including covers) folded vertically in half so that, when folded, concluding page 28 forms front and rear outside panels with page 1 forming right and left inside panels. Slight toning to covers; front panel has mild foxing at bottom and small dark stain at top left; two rusty paper clip impressions at top edge of page 1's right panel; page 22 has fold-down to top corner with red pencil check mark at top edge and red pencil marginalia at bottom right regarding a past owner's flight. Pages are otherwise clean. Airline timetable effective July 9, 1957 for Capital Airlines which was based at Washington National Airport (now officially known as Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport often abbreviated to just Reagan National Airport). Page 1 shows the airline's route map with the western-most cities being Minneapolis-St. Paul, Memphis, and New Orleans with most destination-arrival cities being in the upper Midwest and Mid-Atlantic states. Left side of map features a small illustration of a Vickers Viscount as Capital Airlines was that particular aircraft's first American operator. Viscounts were the first passenger turboprop airplanes and Capital relied on them for their flagship service between Washington, DC and Chicago although the airline apparently relied upon Lockheed Constellations for a majority of its other routes. Interior pages feature timetable schedules of the airline's flights primarily divided into west-bound, east-bound, south-bound, and north-bound. Page 27 features a chart of typical one-way passenger fares. Capital Airlines finalized a merger with Chicago-based rival United Airlines in July 1961. Also included is a postally unused postcard (H 9cm x L 13.75cm) showing a color image of a new company turboprop plane with title "The Capital Viscount . A New Concept in Flight." Image side has slender strip of tape on left edge where it was previously secured in a scrapbook; light soiling to postcard's blank verso; postcard should be contemporary to the timetable pamphlet.
