Comments

?/?/1927. "Old Ned Hunter" standing in front of Cate's Brothers Auto Garage, in the town of Klamath. This old man is the father of the 1970 resident of Martin's Ferry, Jim Hunter. #82 through #84 were apparently originally part of one photo order, for they have the same outer dimensions, the same print size, and the same photographer's lot stamp on the back. #83 shows "High river at the [Klamath River] bridge in March 18th": the year is at least as late as 1927, for in March, 1926, the bridge still had scaffolding on its town of Klamath side, while #83 lacks such scaffolding. Ned Hunter was raised as an Indian, although his father was negro, supposedly having been "Nigger John," the father of Tolowa Amelia Brown and himself a survivor of the 1865 wreck of the Brother Johnathan, on whose crew he served.
