Wow, I can't believe they used a flag for a top boot!

President Taft favored Pope-Toledo motor cars - and top hats. Maybe that's him ?

Rich,

From a practical point of view, as I understand things, President Taft wouldn't fit in a Model T. His size was undoubtedly a contributing factor to his large car preference. :-)

That's exactly so, Henry. There's an interesting story about Taft's official visit to Pocatello, Idaho that involved a curious railroad over-pass, the President's remarkable size, and the equally huge car he was to ride in.

Thatís a young Don Rickles grabbing his tie and moving it back and forth there in the front left of the picture.

Interesting. The U.S. Secret Service was commissioned July 5, 1865. Its purpose initially was to police and suppress counterfeiting which was rampant at the time. The agency was not commissioned to provide security for the president until after McKinley's assassination in 1901.

Another big,top hatted guy that could possibly be is Senator Boies Penrose, of Pennsylvania.
He was known to favor Winton,but to me that does look like a Stuttering Dago.
Penrose was a fascinating character.

This could possibly be from Idaho, so Rich could be right.
