As you might expect, postcards and magazine display ads are the most common Stratoliner memorabilia available in the marketplace.

The image featured in this post was drawn by George Brown Petty IV the famous American pin-up artist. (Petty, an illustrator for Esquire, originated and popularized the magazine centerfold and “Petty Girl” reproductions often became “nose-art” on USAAF warplanes during WWII, including the Memphis Belle.)

The other postcards in my collection are displayed below and include one from Chicago’s “Stratoliner Cocktail Lounge” which, even though it used a DC-3 rather than a B-307 as an illustration, was undoubtedly named after the Boeing aircraft.
