Casket picture

The vehicle on the right of the casket is a hearse and not a train. It looks to be from about 1910 to about 1920. The carrier that the casket is on is early 1900's but could have been used much later.
The two men at the far right of the casket look to be funeral directors. Notice that their collars and suits are the same.
I suspect that the two left men are brothers or father and son.They have the same features
in the face. Notice the brow and nose.
I would check with your local funeral homes and see if they can recognize the directors. they may be able to tell you the time frame and possibly have records of the people they serviced.

Good Luck

Could this be him?
