Hughes took this photo of his oldest son, James Renwick, riding Breeze with a young colt at the mare's side. The photo was taken in July, 1924, when the Hughes family would have been stationed in at Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, Texas. Captain Hughes was the Battery Commander of the 15th Field Artillery. James Clark Hughes was born in Topeka, Kansas, in 1888, and served in the Mexican Border Conflict, World War I, and World War II. He used an autographic camera to take pictures of friends, family, and places in the United States and Europe during World War I.
