- This image depicts an AA 720, an AA DC-6 and the nose of an Electra with "109" painted on the gear door. I was almost 14 years old when I took this shot and this was the one and only time I've been to ORD. I didn't crop the pole on the left because I thought folks would like to see the terminal building at the time. [126 print scan]

This is a real time capsule showing the golden age of classic airliners. Wow, first generation turbojet, turboprop, and recip all at a classic ramp in the pre-jetway era. Excellent scan from a 45 year old print.
