DaytonGram, a local photography group on the social media platform Instagram, will host an InstaMeet from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, June 13 at the historic Wright factory on West Third Street.
DaytonGram organized the event in collaboration with the National Aviation Heritage Alliance, Wright Memorial Public Library and Dayton Aviation National Historical Park. All photographers are welcome, and the event is free.
A NAHA representative will lead a brief tour of the factory, followed by a group picture and time to take photos and explore. Attendees will be required to sign a waiver before entering the buildings.
The Wright Company factory was the first in America built for the purpose of manufacturing airplanes. Wilbur and Orville Wright formed the Wright Company in 1909 and built the first factory building in 1910, adding the second in 1911. The factory housed the first American workforce hired and trained for aircraft manufacturing.
Instagram is an online mobile networking service that enables its users to share pictures and short video clips on a variety of social networking platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr, according to Wikipedia. Instagram defines an InstaMeet as a group of Instagrammers meeting up to take photos and videos together.
Anyone interested in attending the InstaMeet may register on DaytonGram’s Eventbrite page.
The Wright factory is located on the former Delphi Home Avenue auto parts manufacturing plant. The entrance gate is located on the south side of West Third just east of Abbey Avenue. The gate has no specific address, but GPS users will find it by navigating to 2900 W. Third St.
