My grandpa, Alphonso James Thornton, Jr. is the guy on the right. He was 17 in this picture, so it must have been taken in about 1940. He lived in Westfield, Iowa – and I’m assuming that this was taken either there or in Sioux City.
I wonder why my grandpa is in a suit and tie, while the rest of the guys are dressed more casually.
This photo was actually labeled, but the names are hard for me to read.
Here is my best guess, left to right: Don Salem, Bob Salhajan?, Bud Fahay, Charlie Hart, Al Thornton Jr.
