MS-152: Dayton-Wright Airplane Company Photographs
The main focus of the photograph is a production poster hanging above an office in a Dayton-Wright Airplane Company factory, circa 1918. The poster shows a De Havilland DH-4 slowly climbing up into a sky headed for Berlin. Hash marks show numbers up to 4,000 and dates of expected production deadlines. The title of the poster is "Christmas Greetings to Berlin." On the poster cities in Europe are highlighted and anti-aircraft bursts surround the DH-4. The DH-4 is set just above 2,000 at October 8, 1918. Below the poster Dayton-Wright employees work in a small office.
