A.F. Clough, Theodore Smith, and S.A. Nelson
A.F. Clough, Theodore Smith, and S.A.Nelson (no first names given for Clough and Nelson - darn! Maybe someone will recognize a relative and supply them), on Mount Washington, New Hampshire, in 1871.
They are standing at the entrance to the Meteorological Observation Station. Brrr!
One is holding a shovel, one is holding an anemometer, and one is holding a walking stick (an anemometer measures wind speed).
Clough, Smith, and Nelson were hardy souls!
