Hidden Images In Wright Brothers' Photographs
This section of the Wright Brothers Centennial Exhibit is a careful collection of most of the known photographs made by Wilbur and Orville Wright while they conducted flight tests at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in 1900, 1901, 1902, 1903, 1908, and 1911. The majority are from the original glass plate negatives made by the Wrights with their primitive, but effective, camera during these years. In some cases their negatives were damaged in the 1913 flood in Dayton, Ohio. In those cases, the images have been replaced with pre-1913 prints made from the damaged plates. Insofar as possible the images are presented in chronological order from year to year and within each year. The sequence of images also suggests a narrative of these years.
