MS-152: Dayton-Wright Airplane Company Photographs
Three employees of the Dayton-Wright Airplane Company work on packing a De Havilland DH-4 for shipment, circa 1918. The front end of the fuselage is visible as the lid of the crate is being lowered over the aircraft. In the background other employees work on dismantling and crating other DH-4s. A large Blue Star Banner hangs from the rafters with four stars. A sign attached to the Blue Star Banner reads "This department 100% 4th Liberty Loan." The negative is titled "Dayton-Wright Airplane" and labeled 46.
