Friday Faces From the Past – John with ???

Yegerlehner, John with unknown girls - c1934-1935

John, circa 1934-1935

I do not know who the two girls are with John. Perhaps they are Yegerlehner cousins. At the bottom of the photograph has been lightly penciled: John 4 yrs old.

Friday’s Faces From the Past – Unknown Cousin?

Yegerlehner, John with Mark - 1930s

Another undated photograph of John with Mark from the mid 1930s. This time there is a younger boy (and a headless one, too). I wonder if this was another family grouping of the Yegerlehner cousins. I have several in the collection. The landscape in the background seems more open, perhaps at the Yegerlehner farm in Clay county.

Friday’s Faces From the Past – Shop Entrance

Yegerlehner, John - 1930s

During the 1930s, Gladys took a beauty course to help support Roscoe’s education and medical school. She learned how to cut hair and do nails, etc. Could John possibly be playing outside Gladys’ shop? Was the shop located in the back of their house? And does this look like the same tricycle from the earlier post Unknown girl with baby?

Friday’s Faces From the Past – John & Mark

Yegerlehner, John F. with Mark - 1930s

John and Mark, c1934-5

An undated picture of John and Mark, likely from around 1935. John was born in mid 1930 and Mark was born at the beginning of 1933. The question is, Where was this photograph taken? The church in the background is quite distinctive. My guess would be that it was taken in Terre Haute, but until the church is identified, I won’t really know.

Friday’s Faces From the Past – School children

Schoolchildren - 1920s

This photograph is not labeled but I presume the subjects to be some of Roscoe’s early students. Roscoe graduated from high school in 1922 and began teaching the next school year in the rural schools of Clay County.  Between terms he attended the Indiana State Normal School in Terre Haute, graduating in 1927. By the mid 1930s, Roscoe stopped teaching and began medical school. The clothing in this photograph does not make it easy to date so I can only narrow it down by the years of Roscoe’s teaching career, circa 1922-1936.

Friday’s Faces From the Past – Youth and automobiles

1930s - Youth & a car

Here is another mystery photograph from the Foster and Yegerlehner photograph collection. There are nine teenagers and children on this car and I don’t recognize any of them. They could be from the Yegerlehner family or they could be neighbors messing around for a photo op. The picture was likely taken in Indiana and my guess would be in the 1930s.

Friday’s Faces From the Past – Mystery location

Location unknown

Click to enlarge

Although technically there is not a face in this photograph, it is still a mystery. The original is about the size of a postage stamp. Since the photograph survived, the building may have some significance that I am currently unaware of. Possible locations may be: Terre Haute, Lafayette, Bloomington, Clay City and Kentland. We can probably rule out Kentland from the start as it is likely too large of a building to be found there. Any suggestions? Or does anyone actually recognize the building?
