WRIGHT AND A ROYAL DISPLAY.
Black and white photograph, 6 x 9 inches, laid on board and irregularly trimmed.

SIGNED and dated by ORVILLE WRIGHT in lower left corner: "Pau, March 17th, 1909, Orville Wright." The sleepy town of Pau in the south of France became a hub of activity in the spring of 1909, as royal families and heads of state came to see the Wright Brothers fly. This image shows King Edward VII (second standing from left), King Alfonso XIII (fourth) and Orville Wright (fifth). J.P. Morgan and King Victor Emmanuel III also rushed to Pau.
