The "Sleeperette" - a full-length recliner available aboard Pan Am's Strato-Clippers and other aircraft

Description

Image from page 2 of brochure entitled "Pan American World Airways Introduces Another First in Air Travel Comfort...The Sleeperette Compartment" containing tourist information about interior aircraft amenities. Caption reads: "The Sleeperette gives you what the doctor ordered. Our medical research disclosed (1) that fatigue quickly results when legs are cramped (2) that rest is most complete in horizontal position (3) that changes in position bring added relaxation. That's why the Sleeperette has an elevated leg rest - to give you plenty of stretching room. Scientifically engineered, the Sleeperette can be adjusted for relaxing or to let you lie down and sleep. It all adds up to the most refreshing kind of rest - especially for overnight travel."
