Bob Hope Airport

I was down in Burbank and was happy to see some ephemera and other items displayed in the lobby. Only a couple of postcards, but some nice airmail cancels and such.

The terminal hasn't changed much in the past 50 years - this postcard is from the late 1950's or early 60's when it was called the "Lockheed Air Terminal":

The Bantam Anti-Friction Co.

I just thought this company's name was funny. Perfect for all of your frictionless surface needs. Seems like the kind of place Wile E Coyote would purchase some devices. Or the Acme Anti-Mass Co.

I assume they made ball bearings...
