Caption: Orville Wright (1871-1948), centre, filing bicycle frames in the Wright Cycle Company workshop with his friend and neighbour Edwin Sines (left). Wright, along with his brother Wilbur, is famous for making the first powered, heavier-than-air flight in 1903 and for developing the first fixed- wing aircraft. The brothers obtained their practical skills by working with various motors and machines, particularly printing presses and bicycles. They opened a bicycle repair and sales shop in 1892, and by 1896 had developed their own bicycle brand. The revenues funded much of their experimentation with gliders and flying machines. Photographed in 1897.
