Who Am I? Bicycle Duo

These photos were with others from my great-grandmother, Gladys Lillyan Winterringer Garner Van Atta Christine Dilley-BicycleGuys.bmp(1899-1973).  We are not sure who these gentlemen are, but what a classy photo!  I really enjoy it and wish I knew who they were.  No relatives have been able to identify them.  Maybe they weren’t that close to the family and my great-grandmother enjoyed the shot enough to keep it as well!
 
The one on the left could be Ulysses Vanamberg Callahan.  He’s the only Winterringer/Callahan relation who even slightly resembles either gentleman.

  1. Your great-great grandfather, occupation “machinist helper”, lived near Columbus, Ohio in central Ohio in 1900 so I’m surprised that a photo of two young men with classy bikes didn’t send you looking for photos of Orville and Wilber to compare. Looks like a “Wright” match to me.
