Art Deco Air Monsters: A Brief Talk about the Age of the Rigid Airship

  • The Bellevue Club 525 Bellevue Avenue Oakland, CA, 94610 United States (map)

Presented by Joe DiPietro

The Art Deco age ushered in no end of innovation in art, music, and literature. It was also an age of technological innovation that saw the pinnacle of the development of rigid airship. From their roles as an adjunct to military might to their success as the epitome of elegant travel, the rigid airship continues to capture the imagination and inspire awe. Join us for a convivial little lecture on these fascinating aircraft to be presented by the ADSC's foremost (self-described, pun-intended) "gasbag."
