Of course I'm hedging my opinion about the photo. Hell, it isn't like I was there when it was taken, like you Roll Eyes
I knew the date, and it could be a screw up as well- Maybe Cary took the old geezer to lunch then out to the range to see the boys. I dunno, and it doesn't matter, it's still a nice photo.

Though long past its Golden Age, of course, the WH club is still in existence & still shooting.  I'd be shocked if they didn't posses a copy of this famous photo with everyone identified, & perhaps additional info. as well.

Redsetter,

I'm not 100% sure on the names of men in the photo with Harry Pope, people can be easily missidentified, and names misspelled. I think the man at top left, identified as "Moore," may be F. H. Souther. Take a look at this old photo from Mike Petrov;

Remarkable photo; only one I've ever seen of Souther, well known at the WH Club, but rather an obscure figure elsewhere, who built not very many scopes, because, probably, of their cost.

Great picture Bob! I do see similarities between Souther in Michael's picture and the guy on the left in the first picture. Even the same style cap on both guys.
I also see similarities between O E Garrish and the fella with the cigarette and both hands on the barrel.

Abrupt jump from small to large diameter characteristic of scopes made by F. H. Souther

So is the scope on Niedner's rifle also likely a Souther or one that Niedner built for himself?

I can't quite make out how Mr. Neider's scope is mounted.
Looks like one ring, but can't be.
Isn't that his thumb where a very closely spaced mount might be?

I think it is the lighting.  There is something on the barrel even  though I cannot see a ring either.  Mr. Partridge next to him has the same issue, IMO.

I enlarged the image up a lot and I can see Niedner's scope has a front ring around the larger belled portion of his scope. But even enlarged I can't make out the ring in Partridge's rifle. I can make out the front base on his gun though, and tell where it's attached. Just can't make out the ring.

If you'll look a Gibbon's rifle, it appears to be the same as Niedner's (both Krag's?) and you can see Gibbon's front mount, clearly. It looks like the front mount is positioned where the rear sight goes.
