Hostess & Pilot Twins
On the 25th anniversary of the very first air-mail flight in the US, the National Postmasters Convention in 1936 was held in Cleveland Ohio in which the Steuken twins, Margaret & Marjorie stole the show. Here they are shown at the TWA booth displaying the air mail service provided by the company. Can you imagin a $0.03 postage on a air mail envelope! Secondly, TWA's 'twin pilots', L.H. & M.C. Williams are posing with the Steuken twins and Mr. Alexander Graham, the Kansas City postmaster showing off TWA's $1.98 fare for a giant air-mail letter.
A great shot of a DC-2 Skyliner cruising past the Kansas City headquarters plant.
