Here's a pair of Goodyear blimp items from Akron, Ohio, neither of which is dated. The postcard has a divided back, has not been used, and measures an oversized 5-1/2"x9". It's also a Plastichrome which is desirable to some collectors. It pictures the Goodyear air dock, the world's largest buildign with no interior supports. The photograph is an 8"x10" real photo of the blimp itself stamped with a number on the back. Together they're pretty nice!

Photographs Goodyear Blimp Day and Night; Booklet Goodyear Aerial Ambassadors
2 Photographs Goodyear Blimp Day and Night; Booklet Goodyear Aerial Ambassadors
Akron, Ohio Goodyear No date soft cover All items fine condition 
I bought these items together some years ago and they just now surfaced in crisp clean condition. The photos taken at night were hard to photpgraph, but they are much nicer than they appear due to the glossy surface. They are all crisp and clean, including back, but there is no informatio on photographer. Each back is stamped with a number and there is a bit of residue from a strip of paper which may have been helpful. The photos measure 8-1/4" x 10-1/2". The booklet is wonderful -- very attractive in blue and silver throughout with much information in 20 pages. There is no date, but it's at least from the 80's which is when the blimp first lit up at night with incandescent messages. Booklet measures 4" x 8".

Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Magazine Firestone 50th Anniversary, Hope, Bob; Hutton, Betty; Allyson, June
5 Hope, Bob; Hutton, Betty; Allyson, June Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Magazine Firestone 50th Anniversary
U.S.A. Hope, Bob; Hutton, Betty; Allyson, June 1950 1950 Edition Soft Cover Very Good 8 James Montgomery Flagg 
Beautiful copy of the 1950 Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Magazine, made extra-special with the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company of Akron, Ohio. Firestone, along with Goodrich and Goodyear, was at the time of publication one of the largest employers in the city, then known as "the rubber capital of the world." Aside from lots of great circus photos and a Firestone ad on the back cover, there's also a two page color spread inside advertising Firestone, as well as a black and white ad on the reverse side of rear cover touting Fomex padding and its use for fall mats and seats at the circus. This issue also offers the complete 1950 program act-by-act, plus articles by and about celebrities of the day. Cecil B. De Mille wrote a piece about why the circus would be the setting for his next epic film; Bob Smith of "Howdy Doody" fame wrote about Howdy Doody joining the Ringling Circus; and Bob Hope penned a personal piece about why he loved circus clowns. Betty Hutton also tells about the thrill of playing Annie Oakley and June Allyson writes about what it meant to be an animal trainer. There's also a great story about the circus cookhouse at the Hotel Ringling and the huge tent that served as its dining hall. Magazine is clean and nice with just a flat crease to lower front corner. Measures 8-1/2" x 11" ansd has 36 pages. Clean and tightly bound. Only fault is creasing to lower front corner over cover, but lies flat.
