    The Star Gun Club was in Elizabeth.
    I think that the photos are from about 1910.
    I now have the shotgun he's holding.

    Then what are you going to do with the paper crown you have to wear at work. Or do you put that on only when the kids come in to have parties?

    Is that an Alpaca vest he is wearing?

    Probably not...

    BUT, quite dapper ANYWAY, if I do say so myself.

    Seems he knew the photographer was coming... some of the guys seem NOT to have gotten the memo.

    You all want to take a stab at what he did for a living?
    (That's a $1700 (equivalent) he's holding.)
