Vintage glossy 9 x 7.25 photo of Howard Hughes posing alongside John S. Lodwick, Albert Lodwick, and Chicago Mayor Edward Kelly shortly after Hughes's around the world flight, signed in fountain pen, "Howard Hughes," and signed and inscribed "Albert I. Lodwick, Congratulations, lots of luck, John S. Lodwick," and "To Albert I. Lodwick, With best wishes, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of Chicago." In very good to fine condition, with trimmed edges, and some orange staining to the bottom left. Hughes flew around the world in 1938 in a then-record time of three days, 19 hours, and 14 minutes. Albert Lodwick was an aviation enthusiast and Curtiss-Wright Corporation businessman who served as Hughes's flight operations manager during his historic adventure; his organizational skills are highly credited for the success of Hughes's endeavor.
