Lot # 170 - 36-Star Grand Luminary Flag
Cotton and wool, approx. 72 x 140 in., with 36 machine-sewn, double-appliqued cotton stars configured in the "Great Star" or "Grand Luminary" pattern on a wool canton.

Considering the large size of the flag, it was possibly made to be used as a Naval ensign. The 36-star flag became official on July 4, 1865 when Nevada was admitted to the Union. Ca 1865-1867.

William Preston Mayfield (1896-1974) was an aerial, commercial, and newspaper photographer primarily associated with the Dayton Daily News in Dayton, OH. Within a year after making his first photograph in 1909, Mayfield took what is considered to be the first ever photograph from an airplane. With Orville Wright at the controls, he shot the Wright hanger at Huffman Prairie. After working several years for the Dayton Daily News, Mayfield opened a large commercial studio in 1937. This collection of photographs documents the people and places of Dayton, and features several views of area businesses, restaurants, and factories. Some of the photographs capture the hustle and bustle of downtown Dayton during the early-to-mid 20th century.
