Title Delta DC-4 Route Map Sign
Date 1946
Collection Delta Air Lines Airport, Office & TechOps Items
Object Name Sign, Advertising
Catalog Number 2008.96.1
Description Delta route map cut into the shape of a Douglas DC-4 airplane. Painted red lines trace Delta's route system. Delta's Atlanta operations hub is indicated with a large red/white circle. White stars mark cities served by Delta, except Jacksonville, Florida, which has a larger white star with a black dot in its center.
Provenance This map depicts Delta's recently expanded route system, with Chicago-Miami and Chicago-Charleston service added in 1945, and Delta's latest aircraft - the 44-passenger Douglas DC-4, which started service with Delta in 1946. The larger star marking Jacksonville, Florida, probably indicates that this map hung in that airport.
