Job in Colony: In June 1928 Tom and Alex Davidson, Hough, Waters, McClurg, Dougherty, Rosenburg, Mardfin, Weislander and Harold Kemp were working hard to make up for time lost to rainy days.

In 1936 he ran the tailor shop located in the upstairs at the Apartments de Llano (the new hotel). The shop was well equipped for the heavier work of repairing and working over men's wear and women's coats and suits, and smiling Joe, tailor by instinct and long training, was cheerfully ready from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. to put colonists' apparel in good order.
