Friday’s Faces from the Past – A young Jim Foster

Foster, James and others - Clay City, Indiana, c1920s

Click to enlarge

I only know one definite thing about this picture. It was taken in Clay City, Indiana. It was most likely taken during the 1920s. In the back row, the man second from the right appears to be James Foster. I don’t know what James Foster would be doing with a group in Clay City since he was from Terre Haute. The picture looks like an obligatory office picture, the salesmen, clerks and secretaries. James was a plumbing supplies salesmen after World War II. In the late 1920s, James was a clerk for Crane Co. in Terre Haute. He worked there for many years, eventually becoming a salesman.Then again, I could be completely wrong. But I do know the picture was taken in Clay City, right?

The original photograph is from the collection of Deborah Sweeney.

    Yes, before I read your description, as I looked at the photo, my guess was the James Foster was the second from the right, back row. But why do you think he’s in the photo?
