MS-192: Andrew S. Iddings Wright Brothers Homecoming Celebration Collection


This blurry image shows an overhead view of the Court of Honor along North Main Street in Dayton, Ohio during the 1909 Wright Brothers Homecoming Celebration. Crowds are walking between the sculptures and columns lining the edge of the street. The image shows Main Street looking north from Third Street toward the Soldier's Monument. In the foreground a polar bear can be seen, as part of the advertisement, above the Ahlers Fur store located at the Teutonia Bank Building on the northeast corner of Market Street and Main Street. The building on the left side of the image is the Phillips House Co. at the Southwest Corner of Third Street and Main Street. The Montgomery County Courthouse is on the upper left side of the image. The roof of this building is very clear, as well as, the details of the construction.
