This is an original photograph that measures 4 ½” x 3 1/4.” It depicts the pre WW I zeppelin “Sachsen.” She was placed into service in May 1913. Before the beginning of WW I, she transported nearly 10,000 people. When the war began, she was placed in the Army’s service and became known as the LZ 17. She participated in bombing raids and retired from service in 1916. This shot is looking on at the zeppelin’s bow. She is still on the ground, as her engines are not turning over. A large crowd is gathered around her.
