Thanks to Mary Jo Schlickman for sharing this with us.  She notes: “I can see a sign on the tree with
arrow - Burlington and Petersburg. There is also an old Bavarian Beer sign. I was told by family that this
is a picture of a bar around Pike and Main or Pike and Lee in Covington. As to the date I can
only guess. The man in the apron is my Grandfather (Charles Mueller). He was born in 1884 and died in 1917.”
