DOUGLAS DC-4 (and variants)

On this web page I include not only DC-4,
but also the TCA "North Stars", CPA "Canadair Four" and BOAC "Argonauts".

Below, postcards from my collection are shown per airline.

Please note that I have no ambition to collect DC-4 postcards a s such, but since I have quite a substantial number of postcards I find it interesting to group them together per aircraft type from a presentation perspective.

Number of postcards: 74
