sky high amusement 1930s style

passengers while away the time when flying high above the ocean

Toronto. This pictorial courtesy of the Illustrated London News in 1930 shows the inside of a transcontinental aircraft – very cramped unlike today’s wide bodied aircraft – and the use of an amateur projector to show movies while flying over the Atlantic. In this photo, a curtain obscures all but a slice of the bottom of the screen.

In the 1930s, one had to be rather wealthy to fly, not like today where the aircraft are more in line with bus service.

My thanks to our good friend and fellow PHSC member, George Dunbar, for suggesting this photo and the history it displays to passengers of aircraft.
