Deutsche Luft Hansa

When I came across this attractive Art Deco poster advertising the German national airline Lufthansa, I was intrigued by the spelling Luft Hansa - one I had never seen before. Turns out that the Lufthansa as we know it was formed as late as 1953, but that its predecessor was indeed Luft Hansa, which started in 1926. The poster must be from around 1930.
