The lads from last week’s photo are back, but it looks as if John B. Capewell has taken his place behind the camera for this shot.
Eagle eyed viewers will see what looks to be our new found friend Adolph Tumser to the right. Capewell had sent a postcard to Tumser back in 1908 inquiring of his well-being and that of his brother Alick (Alexander.) I’m trying to determine if one of these gentlemen are Alick, but I don’t have much to go on. Ann Tumser who was married to Alick’s grandson had sent me a scanned photo from much later.
I’m not sure what Capewell and the Lads were doing around this quarry, but I have a few negatives with the same fellows that look like they are shot in the same place. Ann Tumser assumed in her post at Unsolved Mysteries that it was the Olean area.
Anyway, here is the whole 5″x7″ photograph.
