This photo was sent to us by Larry Hyer. In 1949, Larry worked at Harlan & Gogs Wittkamp's soda fountain, which also housed the town post office (Gogsie was the postmaster) and there was a gas station there too. This photo was taken inside of the post office, which in 1949, was on the corner of Williard & Commonwealth. (the building is now an Italian restaraunt) This was before the Wittkamp's moved to the building that currently houses the post office.
Larry took the photo and Gogs is #5. The others are kids who worked in the soda fountain, or for Harlan at the garage, and the others were friends and lifeguards.
