Can you identify where this photo was taken, and the people in it?

Niewold Picture 
This foto was taken in about 1950 I quess in Hebron. My older sister in foreground, was visiting her ggrandmother along with her grandmother. On the right is Anna May Martin - Niewold, my grandmother. Her mother is next to her, Florence V. Church - Martin. Florence's husband John J. Martin died in 1935 so I am trying to identify the two men on the left. They could be Wilbert M. Martin son of Florence and or Frank B. Martin, adopted son of Florence. The Martins lived on a farm 4 miles south west of Hebron in 1900 but the grandson was deeded the property in 1945. I suppose they moved into town for a time. John and Florence are buried in Rose Hill cemetery. Can anyone identify where this foto was taken and the two men.
