Albert Elling, the Single Man, 1912

In looking through my box of photos, I came across this postcard addressed to Mrs. Fred Elling, R 25, Delta, Ohio, dated November 6, 1912 and postmarked in Deshler. The back says, "Albert Elling on right" and that's it. I'm not sure who the other fellow is - maybe someone can help me identify him.

Grandpa Albert was born 28 Jan 1888, so in this photo he would be 24 and still a single guy. He didn't marry until 13 Mar 1913. He's looking mighty handsome in his suit and tie and classy hat. I sure see some resemblance to a few folks I know in the family, do you?
P. S. To enlarge the photo for better viewing, click on the picture.
