The photograph shows the Balancing Department at Plant 2 of the Dayton-Wright Airplane Company. Employees of Dayton-Wright work to balance the aircraft propellers. The propellers are held off the ground by the small shaft that attaches them to the engine so that the balance can be tested. Other employees work on propellers in the background and various tools and supplies are seen in the room. Other buildings are visible through the windows of the room. The negative is titled “The Dayton-Wright Airplane Co. Balancing Dept. – Plant 2 – July 18-18.” and labeled 23. View on CORE Scholar: (MS-152, Photo #152)
