MS-192: Andrew S. Iddings Wright Brothers Homecoming Celebration Collection
Wilbur C. Kennedy is dressed in a dark costume portraying Jonathan Dayton and is followed by another actor dressed as a herald. They are walking along a street heading to the opening ceremonies at Van Cleve Park during the 1909 Wright Brothers Homecoming Celebration. Crowds can be seen along the sides of the streets and soldiers from the Second and Third Regiment of the Ohio National Guard are in the upper right hand corner. 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.
