Orville Wright, One-Half of the Wright Brothers

A photo of Orville Wright of the Wright Brothers, circa 1928. Orville Wright was the younger brother, born in 1871. If this photo was taken in 1928, that would have been the 25th anniversary of the first Wright Brothers flight at Kitty Hawk in 1903. Orville would have turned 57 in 1928.
