Old Photos of Vernon

These two 8x10s are from the Weaver-Wakefield Collection. Scanned by Lee Zion

Above titled "All Aboard for Tampico Mexico, June 5, 1910." This photo shows Jack Wakefield (behind the wheel), Jim Stevens, Bab Southwell and Bill Lohman in front of Jesse Stevens post office and "Fountain". The only other individual I can identify is Lyman Weaver (white mustache, vest and bowler leaning against the post at the left).

Below titled "Mexico or Bust June 5, 1910" shows the crew fording the Arickaree. These are the only two photographs that were in the collection. Was the trip real or a just for fun series as some think?
