A small bronze plaque commemorating the inception of air-rail passenger
service in the United States. Dated July 7, 1929.
Done in relief, this piece measures three by four inches, and may have been used as a paperweight. There may have been something attached to the reverse in the two small circles at top (see photos). The plaque has the logos for the Pennsylvania and Santa Fe Railroads, and Transcontinental Air Transport ( which later became TWA). The combined rail and air partnership provided travel from New York to Los Angeles, with various stops along the way. An interesting piece of Air Transportation history.
