(Not So) Wordless Wednesday: Davidson Brothers

First of all, I’m sorry for the quality of this image. It’s a scan of a color copy, so not the best.
I’ve always loved this picture though. It was taken across the street from the Davidson Brothers Motor Company in Kansas City, KS.

The four men sitting are the Campbell Alexander Davidson, Thomas Talbot Davidson, Matthew David Davidson, and John Caffrey Davidson.  I believe the man standing on the left is Earl Davidson (he is one of those that owned the place), and a son to Campbell Alexander.  I think that the man on the right might be Earl’s brother John, but I could be wrong (if you read this Mom Woods, please correct me if I’m wrong!!)

    Thanks so much for posting this picture. Mom would talk about her Kansas City Cousins. The KC Davidsons would come out on week-ends for visits with brothers Thomas & John and all the Tonganoxie area relatives. Earl & John are right for the younger men. So is Matthew David. I’ve got to compare the other 3 men with their photos to make sure who is who. Also, I thought Campbell Alexander was dead by this time, but that too will have to be researched. Gosh! Wish Mom were here to tell another story and identify all the fellows in the photo again, don’t you?
