Atlanta - Delta Heritage Museum: Dolls

The dolls in this case were donated by retired Delta flight attendant Brenda Wallace Sumrall, who worked at Delta from 1966 to 2001, and after retirement turned her old uniforms into doll uniforms.

 

The Delta Archives houses more than 200,000 images, 1,000 films, one of the world's largest airline uniform collections, as well as an aviation reference library.

 

The Delta Heritage Museum, an aviation and corporate museum housed in two 1940's era Delta Air Lines maintenances hangars outside Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport, was established in 1995. The hangars were used until the 1960's when the Delta Technical Operations Center, formerly known as the Jet Base, was completed. The museum's collections and facilities include a number of historical aircrafts including the Spirit of Delta, Delta's first 767, and Ship 41, the first DC-3 to carry Delta passengers, as well as an archives of artifacts related to Delta and its ancestor airlines, an aviation reference library, and a replica of the first Delta station in Monroe, Louisiana.
