My uncle Hugh Chilton has the derby hat on and the cigar.
I have no idea who the others might be.

I was thrilled to see the photo of the Express Wagons. My great Grandfather William Henry Marshall is the tall driver sitting at the reins. His brother Steven Langford Marshall is the man sitting on the back of the wagon. I have had this verified by my mother and her sisters. They too were very excited to see their grandfather and uncle.

Thank you for posting the photo!!!!!


Here is a photo of the Railway Express Company office dated 1909.
There is some chance that it is the "American Express Co."
or "National Express Co." office instead.

The men are, left to right: Ralph Coole, Ralph Chilton, Dan Huff and Walter Wall.
