The Golden Days of the Zeppelin

Woodcut of a Zeppelin.

A Zeppelin was a rigid airship developed by German Count Ferdinand Von Zeppelin in the late 1800s. The vessel had a light alloy skeleton surrounding hydrogen-gas filled balloons known as “gas bags.” It was powered by an internal combustion engine and guided by complex navigational “fins.” The bottom of the structural frame held a compartment for passengers, crew and storage.
