About this Item

Amazing piece of history. Original photograph 5" x 7" with photographer's stamp on verso reading "Norddentscher Lloyd Bremen. P. Cwojdzinski/Bordphotograph/ Turbinen-Schnell-Dampfer/ "Bremen", manuscript notation in lower margin reading"Mail plane taking off from the Bremen. 6 a.m.". Some light waving of plate. In 1929 the Heinkel HE12, a pontoon-equipped mail plane was installed in the two new Norddeutsch Lloyd (NDL) liners, the Bremen and Europa and when they departed on their maiden voyages in 1929 each carried a plane, the Bremen the D-1717 and the Europa the D-1919. The plane was launched by catapult. On July 22 when Bremen was 250 miles outside of New York the plane was launched and piloted by Jobst von Studnitz and Funker Kirchhoff to New York. They arrived 2 1/2 hours later bringing the mail delivery from Berlin to New York in only 6 1/2 days-celebrations were held. In 1930 to celebrate the 71st birthday of Wilhelm II, Carl Theo Zeitschel presented him with a typed manuscript which included 155 original photographs taken on the "Bremen" by the ships two photographers R. Fleischut and P. Cwojdzinski showing the ship at sea , details of the ship, it's arrival in New York and the reception in New York. It's very interesting and available for viewing on line. Zeitschel was the ship's doctor from 1925 until 1935 and Wilhelm II's personal physician in 1930 and 1931. This manuscript is in the Photo collection Huis Doorn and contains this photograph giving us a date of 16 to 20 July 1929. An amazing piece of aviation and postal history.
