MS-192: Andrew S. Iddings Wright Brothers Homecoming Celebration Collection
A man is portraying a herald during the 1909 Wright Brothers Homecoming Celebration opening ceremonies. After the speech by Jonathan Dayton to the Wright Brothers, heralds were sent out into the street to declare the accomplishments of Wilbur and Orville Wright. The herald is holding a scroll while standing on a stool with a crowd of spectators behind him. 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.
