This week’s picture research involves airships for some Steampunk-related illustration work. Lots of great Zeppelin photos abound, of course, and I’ve always liked seeing the more notable peacetime moments such as this flight of the US Los Angeles over Manhattan in 1930. Wikimedia Commons has another very striking picture of the same craft moored to a ship off Panama. The picture below, looking like something from one of the Indiana Jones films, shows the Graf Zeppelin drifting over the Pyramids in 1931. As always, the results of this Zeppelinology will be presented here in due course.
