Chicago Airshow Scenes

These pictures were taken while Konnie was attending the Chicago Airshow in 1938. The processing date on the back of the prints is Feb. 5, 1938, processed by Clark Photos, 46 Fort Washington Ave., New York.  The name of each aircraft was hand printed on the back of each picture. I have added any other details legible in the original photograph, such as the registration numbers and Booth signs.
