Six days a week from 1917 to 1948 Orville Wright chose to come to work here in what he called the Wright Aeronautical Laboratory. Images taken by National Cash Register Company photographers soon after his death give a glimpse of the spare, orderly, and private world where Orville Wright spent the last three decades of his life.

(Inscription under the photo in the upper right corner)
At age 76 Orville Wright was still working every day in his lab when he suffered a heart attack. He died at home three days later.
