Young Men at Bear Creek

Delany Dean

Kansas City, United States

Artist's Description

This is an old photograph of my grandfather, A.G. Delany (on the left), with his friend Hugh Wells. The handwriting on the back of the photo is faded but I believe it says “Bear Creek, 1913.”

I found this among many, many other old photographs my mother had kept in various cardboard boxes. I sorted and scanned nearly all of the ones that were still salvageable, and posted them up on Flickr.

I found this one in particular incredibly intriguing. I have no idea who Hugh Wells was. I did a bit more restoration work with it, including a texture layer, today.

Obviously, I didn’t take this photograph; unfortunately, I am quite sure there is nobody living who can tell us who the photographer was.

Someone once really cared about this picture; you can see the spots where thumbtacks held it up on display, long ago.
