At True Case's barn
Description: The photograph shows four boys standing in the doorway of a barn. The oldest, wearing a three piece suit and hat, holds a pail. Straw or hay covers the floor of the barn and is piled to the right. The barn is identified as belonging to "True Case," likely Truman W. Case (1870-1943) of Eden, Ohio. According to the 1910 U.S. Census, Truman Case was married to Nava S. Kinley Case, and they had three children: Fred, Marie and Paul. Nava was a relative of photographer Harry Evan Kinley (1882-1969), a native of Upper Sandusky. Kinley was active in local events and organizations, and spent his professional career as a clerk at his father's department store, and later as a traveling salesman for the Marion Paper & Supply Company (1934-1962). He was also an avid lifelong photographer, and the bulk of the Harry Kinley Collection is comprised of glass plate negatives documenting the Kinley family, the city of Upper Sandusky and Wyandot County and surrounding areas.
