Terah Maroney Plane at Port of Everett Photograph

 Collection — Folder: 1
Identifier: 2021-02-25
The Terah Maroney Plane at Port of Everett Photograph is a small collection consisting of a single 3.25x4.5" black-and-white photograph. The image depicts Terah Maroney's plane at the Port of Everett surrounded by a crowd on July 4, 1914. Maroney had been invited to perform at the Kla-How-Yah Festival (later called the Kla-Ha-Ya Days). Bill Boeing, Sr. and his partner George Conrad Westervelt were at the event and saw Maroney fly. Some sources say Boeing took his first flight with Maroney at this event, while others suggest that Boeing did not take a flight until 1915, but that this event inspired his interest in aviation. Maroney, Boeing, and Westervelt are not visible in the photo. The photo is fairly faded and some details are hard to make out.
