Hite’s Law: “Alternate Universes have more Zeppelins”, comes from this quote:
“All Change Points, from Xerxes to the last presidential election, create worlds with clean, efficient Zeppelin traffic. Changing history may produce Zeppelins as an inevitable by-product, much as bombarding uranium produces gamma rays. Often, the quickest way to tell if you are in an Alternate History is to look up, rather than at a newspaper or encyclopedia. From this premise, it is not outside the realm of Plausibility that our history between 1900 and 1936 was, in fact, an Alternate History. It would, at least, explain a lot.”
- Kenneth Hite, “An Alternate-Historical Alphabet,” January 14, 2000
It is my contention is that this theory is the only possible explanation for Delahaye and their contemporaries.
What say you?
ps: pop-trivia item: the airship maker from the lead image are still in business. But no longer making Zeppelins :-(
