Product Description

Panoramic photograph of the R34 zeppelin that was built by the British Army for use during World War I.

The R34 was built in Inchinnan, Renfrewshire, Scotland by William Beardmore and Company. She made her first flight on 14 March 1919 and was delivered to her service base at East Fortune on 30 May of the same year. R34 made her first endurance trip of 56 hours over the Baltic on the 17 to 20 June.

On 27 January 1921 she left on what should have been a routine exercise. Over the North Sea the weather worsened and a recall signal sent by radio was not received. Following a navigational error the craft hit the North York Moors in the dark and lost two propellors. She went back out to sea using the two remaining engines and in daylight followed the Humber estuary back to Howden. Strong winds made it impossible to get her back into the shed and she was tied down outside for the night. By the morning further damage had occurred and the R34 was written off.

Our selection of old vintage photos are the perfect wall art for anyone's home, restaurant, bar, shop or office.
