  1. This is a gorgeous picture. However, you give three names but it is only two people. Who are the handsome, well dressed, men and what year was this picture taken?

    Thank you so much,

    Linda Tart

    1. Camillus Darden, left, and Bud Vick, right. They’re standing in front of Charles H. Darden & Son funeral parlor, owned by Camillus’ father. The photo is undated, but my guess is the mid-1910s.
