1915 Douglas Brothers
« on: 28 Feb 2009 at 12:05 »
The attached photo has been in my family since 1915. It shows, rather poorly, I'm afraid, gentlemen reputed to be the famous Douglas brothers outside the Wheatsheaf pub in Corston, Somerset, England.

Are they the Douglas brothers?

The van (a Ford Model T?) belonged to my great-grandfather, a good customer of the Wheatsheaf, I believe.  As was his son.  Both are in the photo, I've been told, but they are lost in the murk.

I'd really like a better clearer print.  Has anybody got one?
