Eugene Gerber and friends

Gene Gerber is standing on the far right in this photo. He and his five buddies seem to be getting ready for a boat trip - on the nearby Mississippi River?

The large brick building in the far background has been identified as part of the Anheuser Busch brewery in St. Louis, Missouri.

The lettering on the wagon reads: Wm. Green, 3045 S. Broadway. Who was Bill Green? There are a number of family photos where this wagon appears.

The oar lying on the ground has no doubt been assigned to the sixth member of this group of boatmen who was taking the photo.

The young boy passing through the foreground appears to have been the only witness to this expedition.
