[William Bogel and Father]
This photograph shows a middle-aged man sitting in a chair with his arm around a boy who is standing to the right. Both of them are wearing dark suits with bow ties. The man has a moustache and beard and is sitting with his right leg crossed over the left. The background appears to be a wall indoors. A related source names the boy as William Bogel (father of William Woodworth Bogel) and his father in Germany. texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth40128/
