MS-192: Andrew S. Iddings Wright Brothers Homecoming Celebration Collection
A man portraying a herald is reading a scroll during the 1909 Wright Brothers Homecoming Celebration opening ceremonies. After the opening ceremony was completed, Jonathan Dayton requested that the heralds go out and proclaim the accomplishments of the Wright Brothers to all. The image shows a herald standing on a stool and reading from a scroll to the crowd of spectators. The opening ceremonies were held at Van Cleve Park (also known historically as Newcom Park or the Log Cabin Park), which is now RiverScape MetroPark.
