    George Washington Austin and Harrison Austin
    This is clearly George W Austin on left. Original caption says "George W Austin and brother". Given the date, and location (California), this must be either Levi Austin or Harrison Austin on the right. Both were in California from the 1870's onward, and given that Levi was 29 years older than George, and that these two look to be closer in age, I'm speculating this is Harrison Austin. -- Hugh Byrne
