[Ad for Owens Shoe Company], The Daily Advance (Elizabeth City, N.C.), 18 November 1932

Notes
Wright Memorial is situated at the top of Big Kill Devil Hill. Therefore, to view the memorial one must climb the dune’s precipitous slopes. Although the march up can be a daunting task, this extremely clever shoe advertisement is just a little exaggerated. The image in the middle is of a modern airplane not a Wright flyer.
