The Fusons and the Meekers. I'm not sure where Mil is looking, but it's certainly somewhere else.

That title really is Ruthe's caption for this picture of John and Ben Meeker. What good posture we have ...

John Meeker drinking from the hydrant

John Meeker always struck me as a very serious fellow. He toured the country giving lectures about the importance of teetotaling. He briefly went to an Ivy League school for seminary before heading to transferring to a California seminary. He was a Presbyterian minister, particularly interested in missionary work throughout the west. He camped in a suit.

But this picture is a bit goofy ...

Taken probably around 1910
