Clarence”Grandpa” Liv, and Alonso “Teddy” Tucker, hanging out behind the Wright Cycle Company around 1897 in Dayton, Ohio. The Wright brothers are credited with taking these photos, which makes them even more interesting, but we especially love these two boys. Curious what conversations took place between them and Wilbur & Orville. Maybe they helped out around the shop. Maybe they provided a nice break for the brothers from repairing and building bicycles. Also, why did Clarence have the nickname “Grandpa”, and why did Alonso have the nickname “Teddy”? #daytonohio #cincinnatiohio #columbusohio #ohiohistory #cleveland #africanamericanmuseum #germany🇩🇪 #france🇫🇷 #italy🇮🇹 #paullaurencedunbar #daytonhistory #daytonaviationheritagenationalpark #nationalpark

Paul Laurence Dunbar was an important American and internationally renowned poet, novelist, and playwright. In high school, Dunbar was a friend of Orville and Wilbur Wright. In 1890 Dunbar wrote and edited the Dayton Tattler, Dayton's first weekly African-American newspaper. It was printed by the Wrights. It supported the Republican Party and promoted the interests of African-Americans. The Wright brothers also helped Dunbar build a bicycle for himself. #daytonohio #cincinnati #columbus #ohiohistory #cleveland #nationalparkservice #diversitymatters #toledo #paullaurencedunbar #wrightbrothers #wrightbrothersnationalmemorial #africanamericanhistory #aviationlovers #aviationhistory #daytondunbar
ON THIS DAY: March 1, 1889—the first issue of the West Side News paper appeared, and listed Orville Wright as the publisher. It was distributed throughout the neighborhood of West Dayton, Ohio free of charge to attract customers. The West Side News billed itself as “a paper to be published in the interests of the people and business institutions of the West Side”. Printing was the first business collaboration between the Wright brothers. The close and productive team that created the world’s first airplane formed during this period. #daytonohio #cleveland #cincinnati #columbus #ohio #ohiohistory #nationalpark #aviationlovers #aviationdaily #printdesign #graphicdesignusa #letterpress #makersmovement #daytonhistory #makersgonnamake #printingindustriesofamerica
