Have you seen the radiator sign before?
It is supposed to say something about Oshkosh.

Might be a Grand Army of the Republic Uniform. The emblem might be Oshkosh by Gosh!

Little known history fact:

The man is the picture is General Confusion. This photo was taken while he was on an inspection tour of the new troop barracks with his personal secretary. Their staff car is parked to the right. He was later demoted to private after it was discovered that not only did he inspect the barracks but also his secretary!

He was famous for his handlebar mustache so he had one added to the radiator of his staff car.

Always good to have the facts, ... :-)

While still 1stLt., "Gen. Con" was widely praised as a chemist and scientist, inventing
amongst other things, square wheels, birds, and crazy religion. After the inspection debacle,
Gen. Con retired, changed his name to "Deltoid Elixir", and made Vodka out of strawberries.

Be sure to pass this around. Another pile of facts a person can learn on the internet !

The inspection may have gotten him a demotion, but his secretary sure looks ..... happy :-)

Burger,
His uniform appears to be a Spanish American War Khaki uniform.
