      This is cool and eerie. Is it scanned from a periodical?

      This photo has recently been misidentified as the Hindenburg as the result of a posting at the gadget blog Gizmodo.

      The USS MACON/AKRON sister ships structure was actually a bit stronger than the Hindenburg's: they had 3 keels insted of just the one + 8' talll "Deep Ring" designs that allowed stronger bracing and the crew to use the rings a catwalsks to crawl practically anywhere inside the bigships.
