Title from recto. | 1 postcard, untraveled, with a color illustration of a model airplane terminal and hanger. | "The Aviation Building. This exhibit has been designed to give visitors the impression of their arrival at a large and busy airport. In the central portion will be shown the latest type planes and even the plane of tomorrow. The dome-like rear portion holds an invisibly suspended transport plane with propellers moving as if in flight, with a cloud illusion projected against the curved background.

Gordon Carr."--verso. | "64998"--verso. | "New York World's Fair, Officially Licensed, NYWF Lic. 2974"--verso. | English. | Wolfsonian Library display: Streamlined: From Airplanes to Architecture, April 15, 2009-July 15, 2009, (XC1991.170.405), postcard of The Aviation Building.
