Four of the men are identified in this group portrait of employees of the Portland Wire & Iron Works, located at 84 North Second Street in Portland, at the corner of Everett. In detail view 1 we see, from the left, Frank Ralogh, John Bauman, an unidentified man, Frank Kramer, and Ross Nagel, who appears to be "in management". Founded in 1891 by Charles Boost, the company went through multiple owners, including Thomas H. Banfield, of Banfield Expressway fame, who purchased the firm in 1923. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
