A DC-3 roars past the Grossmünster and the Münsterbrücke over the Limmat: To our knowledge, this is the only original Swissair poster with a clear reference to Zurich – designed by Theodor Brunner and signed accordingly in the top right-hand corner; we therefore assume that he created it before founding his agency Studio Selecta in 1937 or 1938. Otherwise he would probably have chosen the company name – as in the case of his other Swissair posters.

A sheet that is not only extremely rare, but also in excellent condition. We may one day even be able to explain why it was printed in Lugano of all places. And finally: despite its width of just 60,5 cm, the sheet has not been trimmed.
