The Feb. 8 photo of the Levee Saloon is in the McLean County Museum of History archive as a saloon in Bloomington, IL bearing an inscription with the name of one of the men. You might want to check this out by contacting the historian there. Can you verifiy the source you have for it?
From Calumet 412: The original source, a beer culture flikr page, no longer exists. I will contact the historian. Thanks for the tip!
