MS-152: Dayton-Wright Airplane Company Photographs
A Liberty Engine is suspended by a hoist in the photograph taken at the Dayton-Wright Airplane Company, circa 1918. The photograph is marked by a white mask around the engine. This is used to block out part of the background so that the focus of the image would be the Liberty Engine. On the outside of the white mask a fuselage of a De Havilland DH-4 is visible and employees of Dayton-Wright hold a white background cloth up to help isolate the engine. The Liberty Engine was a twelve cylinder engine used to power the De Havilland DH-4.
