A Severe Case of Gas - by George B. Pendlebury

The British R-100 moored at St. Hubert, Que in August 1930. This was the only large dirigible to ever visit Canada. After its return to England, and following the tragedy of the R-101, the R-100 was hangared until it was scrapped. This marked the end of the British Empire's era of rigid airships.
