The 'Ten Dayton Boys'

Growing up, Wilbur Wright was mature for his age and gravitated toward his older brothers, Reuchlin and Lorin. Along with seven of their friends, they accepted Wilbur as the youngest member of an informal social club they called the Ten Dayton Boys. Singing was a favorite pastime of the group. Wilbur stands at the center, with Reuchlin to his right and Lorin seated at the extreme right.
