Slate: City of Glendale

Search again:


The "City of Glendale" was a hydrogen-filled metal dirigible. His plan was to travel up to 100 miles per hour, with as many as 40 passengers, and deliver them from the airship to their final destinations in an elevator on a long wire to the ground, "thereby eliminating expensive ground crews, mooring masts, and other terminal facilities".
