Photos of the Wright Brothers
At the turn of the century, cyanotype prints, which are recognizable by their distinctive bluish-green tint, and sepia prints, which are black and white photos toned with an archival-like brownish tint, became extremely popular with journalists and photographers because of their relative ease in production and inexpensive nature. While the cyanotype’s color gives it a more modern appearance, the rustic look of the sepia retains a traditional essence. Yet, in either format, these photos that brilliantly capture Orville Wright with friends, family, onlookers, and the 1911 glider are both dramatic and endearing. Also included is a 1909 French postcard of Wilbur in flight.
