The actual painting was done in a Howard Johnson restaurant in Pittsfield, MA. In April 1958. The 30 year old Massachusetts State Trooper Richard Clemens who was a neighbor of Rockwell was asked to pose with 8 year old Eddie Locke who was recruited from a local elementary school. The actual session took about one hour with photos being taken as well. The man behind the counter was modeled after Rockwell’s assistant Don Johnson who was photographed separately. Locke also modeled as the boy in “Before the Shot”.
In 2008 Clemens and Locke were honored together at a luncheon in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the painting.
