Description Western Union Office, Delaware, Ohio Train Station, on the left is Harry W or M Jones, and on the right is Herbert Lee Harter, on June 29, 1898. The two men are seated, both wear hats and from the shine of their faces they appear to be warm, though they are also dressed in suits with vests and long sleeves. One hat looks like a popular bowler and the other is a cap with a pattern, it could be a religious skullcap. There are two wall mounted telephones and numerous photographs displayed that are too small to identify. Typical of the times, the photograph is framed showing a high ceiling. There are large blank areas and small densely cluttered areas.
