This photograph was sent by Bub
KNAPP, who found it among his grandfather's things when he died during the
1970's. His grandfather collected antiquities and probably found this framed
photograph. Perhaps he recognized some of the people in it. Gutekunst, the
photographer was considered one of the best photographers of his time and had
two studios in Philadelphia.
The men in the photograph appear to
be wealthy and prominent. Perhaps they are members of an engineering,
scientific or medical group. Bud Knapp is attempting to identify the group and
the men therein.
