"The source of this photograph is
the Genealogy of Brian J. Smith at
Joe Mesker in the 1950's. This photo is in an envelope labeled "Dearest Joe," which is probably my grandmother's handwriting. On the back of the photo, in the same handwriting, are the words: "Joe Mesker - Picture taken day he was hired as Purchasing Agent for Walter Johnson Construction Co."
This photo was part of a collection passed from Joe Mesker to his sister Bianca Mesker Smith to her son Bill Smith to me.
