Civil Aircraft Photographs from Asia

     My Asian collection is a little more numerous than the African one, but not by much.  Mostly prints gleaned from the airlines in the 1940s and

     1950s.   I will deviate somewhat from the airline scheme in the case of India, and will include other civil lightplanes. Again, my thanks to Jennifer
     Gradidge for filling in the holes I had in my collection for the still-born book "Airlines and Airliners of Yesteryear".  Volume 2 of this work was
     to have been for the "rest of the world",  i.e. other than the western hemisphere.  Again, if any viewer has shots of Asian aircraft in the 1920-1960
     era that they would like to share I would be happy to include them.
