The number of historical mistakes in this article are too numerous to list.

Where are the fact-checking editors today?

Oy.
Life is too short to attempt correcting the alternate facts of this one. The pics of the women's dresses are of Catherine Wright (left), Mrs. Darwin Martin (middle), and someone I don't recognize who may not even be wearing a Wright designed dress (right).

I think the one at right is his mother. Don't know about the dress.

The images in the article are the high point, for me -- multiple rarely-if-ever-seen photos of Wright, and others (we even have Randy Henning's smiling
face, in the replies). Anybody name the persons in the photo with Olgivanna ? The rendering of La Miniatura is the least-often reproduced one; a photo
of Ennis shows ladders on the roofs and the distant horizon.

If you are referring to the Easter breakfast photo ... aside from Mr. Wright, it's difficult to say, though the fellow on her right might be David ... Wright.

Another question is ... where outdoors was the breakfast held? The background is far too dark to tell, but there seems to be an overhead ... might it be on the terrace below the draughting room, during the period when it was covered?

Yes, Rood, I believe that is where the breakfast picture (the only one I have never seen before) was taken.

My favorite photo is the last, with Himself in his velvet suit with the ankle straps.
