This black and white photograph shows the store front of Jackson's garage in Clay Center, Kansas. In the doorway of the business, a gentlemen informal stands before the camera while a second man poses with an Indian (Motocycle). To the left of the men, a wooden sign reads "LIKE A FLASH" Indian (Motocycle). The Indian (Motocycle) Company was founded as the Hendee Manufacturing Company in the early 1900s by George M. Hendee and Carl Oscar Hedstrom in Springfield Massachusetts. The dark red motorcycle, a company trademark, was purchased by customers from all walks of life.
