Unidentified men standing outside of J. T. Foster Co.


Black and white image of five men standing in front of a truck parked in front of an open garage door. Four of the men wear suits and hats, and the last man is dressed in a service industry uniform with a peaked hat. Painted on the side of the truck is 'J. T. Foster Co., Phone 1011. Myers Pumps - Service. Hillsboro, Ore.' and on the front of the truck it reads 'Foster's.' The neon sign behind them pointing at the main entrance adds that J. T. Foster Co. sells electrical appliances and farm equipment. A rack containing hoes and other implements can be seen in the open garage behind them. This image was part of the H. E. McMullen bequest. Herbert McMullen was a local photographer who also collected other photographs and images of daily life in the area.
