All of these men, assembled for a photo in front of a Gary-Hobart line streetcar, are unidentified save for the man in the white shirt and suspenders, second from the right. He is Henry Ols. He was employed as a carpenter for the streetcar line. He made benches for the streetcars.

The date is unknown, but estimated at around 1914-15.
