Hello Pfizzel and thanks for asking once again on JustAnswer

1) The question is not clear to me? Can you kindly explain?
2) Is this a homework related question?
3) For those pictures, you can use the upload button in the reply window or upload them to some free image sharing site like www.tinypic.com (one by one) and paste the links here.
4) What needs to be done to pictures?

Let me know all the details so that i can reply you appropriately.
Regards

Hi, pfizzel.

I'd like to try to help.

Are you sure about the time period (early 1900's) for these photos? They could be from an earlier time.

Where did you come upon these photos?

Do you have reason to believe they are of famous people?

Are the people in the photos related to each other and/or to some event?

Thanks,
Cher
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

UUmmm.. on one of the photo's there is a trade mark and a date for 1900. I found the picture in the crawl space of a home i purchased about two years ago. I don't know if they are famous people or not. I don't really have any further information

Expert:  Cher replied 4 years ago.
Hi again, and thanks for your reply with additional information.

I'd appreciate your patience in giving me some time to research this for you.
By the way, does the trademark have a legible name/company or symbol?

Thanks,
Cher
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
yes, lacey and nicholson, I found they were a company in chicago back then but that was all I could find
Expert:  Cher replied 4 years ago.
Hi again,

Thanks for those two names.

I'll research this further and get back to you as soon as I find something.

Thanks for your patience.

Hi again,

I have found information which indicates that the bearded man in the three photos may be Lew Wallace, author of Ben Hur.

Scroll down almost to the bottom of the page at the link above, to find:

"Thomas B. Nicholson, The Home of Ben Hur: A Series of Photographs (Crawfordsville, IN: Lacey & Nicholson), 1900. [Contains a letter of Wallace's, in facsimile, dated July 4th, 1899, authorizing the brochure.]"

I agree to this! In the double picture are they the same guy? If you goolge image lew walace both of those men appear.
Expert:  Cher replied 4 years ago.
Hi again,

I'm glad this is the information you were seeking! : )

No, in the picture of both men, they seem to be two different people. I don't know who the other man is, but if you could supply the link to what appeared when you googled 'image Lew Wallace', I'd like to see that. I put that into google and didn't get the double picture. Maybe it's his son.
