I belive this stable was in Springfield, Illinois. I have been told that
the stable was owned by my father's uncle, William Thomas Smith who was born in Loami,
Sangamon County, Illinois 2 Dec 1871. He died 2 Dec 1946 in Springfield, Illinois. The
man in the picture looks like my grandfather, Charles Leroy (William's brother), but I am not sure.
William was married to Nellie Mae Carrigan on 12 Mar 1894.
