Wright Brothers Flight Photograph Print By Horace Ashton
c. 1910 Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk, Photograph taken by Horace D. Ashton, vintage image printed later from the original Glass Plate Negative, by Underwood & Underwood, sheet measuring 20" x 16", Unframed, Choice Near Mint.
This historic Horace Ashton Mammoth Size Photograph of the Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk was printed later at an unknown date, from the original glass plate negative. It shows the 1909 Flyer in flight together with its Catapult Derrick, ground crew and onlookers while passing by low to the ground. This is an official, vintage, Underwood & Underwood Authorized Issued, Horace D. Ashton photograph of the Wright brothers reproduced as offered by the Museum of American Photography with their imprint on the otherwise blank reverse side. A rare image and excellent for display.
HORACE D. ASHTON (c. 1880-1930)

Not much is known about Ashton, including his place of birth. (Some say it was England.) Ashton, who had photographed everything from the first flight of the Wright brothers to harems in Africa, had been working for Underwood & Underwood, an American photo agency, for 25 years when he mysteriously disappeared around 1930, most likely in the jungles of Africa.
