Here's what we know about this photo:  It was taken before 1897
because Vincent Winkler died during that year. He was the only one 
identified in the photo when I received it.

Also, from another picture I found of the Winklers, we were able to
identify his wife. 

An article in the Mt. Vernon Register, October 25, 1885, (Reprinted
in the May 1995 

Preserver from the Jefferson Co. Genealogical Society) reports the
organization of a new 

Post of GAR 537 in Moores Prairie.  It was named the Barbee Post
in honor of Daniel Barbee 

who was killed at Fort Donelson.  The following names were given:
R. C. Nooner, W. G. Wyrick, E. Kirdendall, Thomas Hank, T. C. McClure, 
J. T. Waters, N. E. Skinner, Wm. T. Hicks, Wm. Drew,D. S. Hunter, Martin Moore, 
Josh Epperson, John Fisher, Vincent Winkler, Thos. Wilkey, John Drew, 
E. J. Finn, Thomas Drew and Harvey Capps.

According to Harold Felty's Civil War Soldiers & Veterans, Hamilton
Co., IL, the GAR Post 537 moved from Moores Prairie to Dahlgren about 1895.
I believe this photo might have been taken before that move.

We do know the building was not Wilbanks Stand as we had thought. 
The stand was demolished before this time.  However, it might
have been a a store called 
Sunflower.  I believe the banner says "One Country--One Flag."
