Bring Back Flyer's Map
Text on verso: 'The first relic of the round-the-world flight to be brought back is the map used by Lieut. Erik Nelson, engineering officer of the party, on the first leg of the long trip. It was brought back by a friend to whom Nelson presented it and shows through its myriad of wrinkles and torn pieces, highly interesting pencil notations made by the airman relative to the course of the flight. This picture shows little Lillian Guenther of Los Angeles holding the historic map.'
