That's George W Burris, Jr. on the right.

I have no idea who the other guys are, or where the photo was taken.

Or why they are wearing guns...or if they were really left-handed.

Scan is courtesy of one of my cousins...

Thanks, cuz.

Great photo! I know you don't know who the other gentlemen are, but was George a lawman?

No, but he worked for the Postal Service. I understand from old family stories that sometimes they were armed when they went to remote areas.

I'm wondering if this photo isn't more about clowning. I am pretty sure Granddaddy was right handed...

Your welcome, cuz.

I wish I knew the story behind this photo. One thing is for sure, he did like to clown around - and I'm pretty sure he was right handed too. Maybe someone deputized him or something. It is a cool picture though.
