Fun on the Square!

McLeansboro, Hamilton County, IL 

These fine young men are having a good time on the "Square" in McLeansboro in the early 1920s.
The man in front is Cotton Lowery and behind him is Hillard Tyler.  The other two young men are unknown.
The brick street was paved around 1960.  At that time, other young men would roller skate around the square.

Update:  The third young man on the horse is probably Arthur Chelf.  (by Lu Chelf).
