A photocopy of a note accompanies this image. Each of what appear to be seven different entries on the note are listed here:

1) "Some claim that the man walking down the track in the second picture was Henry Bates - but I do not think so. H.A.A. 1939!"

2) "return to him"

3) "Harry A Axtell Bloomington, Ind."

4) "Picture taken at Monon passenger station about 1880."

5) "Supposed to have been taken by Miss Mattie Buskirk - Aunt of Hays Buskirk and Phillip Hill."

6) "#945 4x4 Attorney Robert G. Miller, City."

7) "Gave this to CB [Waldron ?]"

(Right to Left) Daniel Kirkwood, Theophilus Adam Wylie and Rev. Minton of the First Presbyterian Church of Bloomington.

An examination of known photographs of Henry S. Bates were compared to this image and it is possible that the man walking along the railroad tracks is he. However, it is also possible that the man in between Minton and Wylie is Bates.
