V. E. Langston is the last man on the right, with his arm on the wall.

I am currently working on the family tree of my secret sister from Church. When I contacted her great grandfather for information and pictures, this picture of his grandfather and store was one of them. His name is Billy Kee of Powderly, Texas.

I do not know where it was exactly located in Tarrant County. I am assuming since Virgil Erastus Langston was living in Tarrant County on the 1910 census, that his store was there also.
