This group of  men were WWI vets who bought a bottle of wine and agreed that the last living member would drink it and toast the others.  My father Oliver S. is seated left.  I think that's Roy Westerlund (owned a bar & dining room just west of the square) in the center and maybe a Mr. O'Malley (ran the Iowa Power & Light office on the SW corner of the square) seated far right.  Russ Rickleton is in the back row, possibly on the left, he had a show store on the square. [1950's]
