Argent Editions Historic Photographs

Aviation Photographs

Cameras were there for the moment of man's first powered flight. Brothers Orville and Wilbur Wright themselves documented the flight trials in Dayton, Ohio and Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. These Modern Original prints of the Wright Brothers and other subjects are made from high resolution scans of the original negatives.

The Wright Brothers' photographs are of such historic value that we hope you'll excuse some of the marks of age evident in the prints.
