Captain Hughes took this photo of an unidentified women and a child viewing the Victory Highway marker in Shawnee County. The Victory Highway was established following WWI as a memorial to those who fought and died in that conflict. This portion of what would become Highway 40 went from Kansas City to San Francisco. The photo was taken either in August or September of 1924, probably while the Hughes family was transferring to Fort Sill, Oklahoma, where Captain Hughes would participate in the Battery Officers Course at the Artillery School. A full biography of James Clark Hughes is available at the link below to Kansapedia.
