Lot Details
WILBUR WRIGHT SIGNED RECEIPT FROM THE CYCLE COMPANY
WRIGHT, WILBUR. Document Signed ("Wright Cycle Co."), partially printed and accomplished in autograph, 2-1/4 x 4-1/2 inches (114 x 57 mm), [Dayton, Ohio], May 20, 1896, reading "Received of Mrs. M. Crabbs - $12.00 in payment on note - Wright Cycle Co."

The Wright brothers operated a print shop and bicycle shop simultaneously from a rented location at 22 South Williams Street in Dayton, Ohio. It is likely that they printed this receipt upstairs in their own shop, leaving a space for the company name at the lower right so they could write in whether the receipt was for the Wright Cycle Company or the Wright Printing Offices.
