      Bet they are people that were in Hangtown CA at the same time as JM Studebaker and this is taken when JM returned to Hangtown (Placerville, CA) early in the 20th century for a reunion of the Gold Miners.

        That would be my guess as well. Wheelbarrow Johnny and friends.

                The man in front with the hat is J. M. Studebaker.

                  The occasion was a reunion of 49ers in Hangtown (Placerville), CA. I think it happened in 1912.

                    I read that somewhere too, that this was a reunion in Hangtown.

                      I also note that this was back when gentlemen always removed their hats when posing for a picture. Today they not only leave 'em on, many can't even tell which way the hat is supposed to face. And that's not just kids, it's grown men!

                        Scott has it right. That is John M. Studebaker and his old buddies who met for a reunion in old Placerville (nee Hangtown). They are shown in front of the Tremont House prior to a special dinner. The year was 1912 and John M. was 78. He passed away on March 17, 1917.

                          Didn't you publish that, with the story, in a Turning Wheels' Almanac or Antique Studebaker Review, Dick?

                          It and the story certainly seem familiar. BP
                          We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                            That was also in a publication put out for the centennial in 1952. I can't remember if it was included in "A Century On Wheels" or not, but I'm pretty sure it was in the magazine/flyer Studebaker made.
