Three photographs related to the Wright Brother's historic first flight at Kitty Hawk. The first is a 1928 re-issue of the famous 1903 photograph of Orville and Wilbur Wright as they make their first ever flight at Kitty Hawk. Issued for the 25th anniversary, the verso bears a detailed paper caption by the Associated Press. The second photo is an original photograph of aviator Orville Wright at the 25th anniversary of the Kitty Hawk flight. He is posed at the memorial along with senator Hiram Bingham, where delegates to the International Conference on Civil Aeronautics unveiled a tablet on a huge boulder. Amelia Earhart was at the event, but out of frame, having recently accomplished her trans-Atlantic flight. The photo was taken by Underwood & Underwood, with their description and other stamps on the rear and their copyright notice on the front. There are two small closed tears, one on the right edge impacting the photo itself. The third photo is an Acme Telephoto copy of Milton Wright donating the famous plane to the Smithsonian, shaking hands with Chief Justice Fred Vinson and Vice President-elect Alben Barkley.

1910. One 7 in. x 5 in. type 1 photograph, affixed to a larger 10 in. x 8 in. sheet. The reverse of the sheet has the stamps of "Culver Pictures, Inc." The photo itself has been glued, but the bottom third is loose, permitting a view of the photograph's verso, where the original photographer is identified as "The Pictorial News Co" (as well as other pencil and pen notations). The front of the sheet reads: "Wilbur Wright giving final instructions to Johnstone before the successful World's Record Flight for Altitude."
