MS-152: Dayton-Wright Airplane Company Photographs
In the foreground of the photograph a group of women stain the wooden skeletons of the wings for a De Havilland DH-4 at the Dayton-Wright Airplane Company. At each station a group of women stain the wooden wings with an observer watching. In the background other employees are working and a stack of aircraft wing skeletons can be seen. A sign hangs on the wall that reads "100% for this department in the Liberty Loan Program Sun. Sept. 29 at 3 P.M." This image was taken circa 1918.
