formal portrait of William Altreuter was probably taken after his brother,
Royal, had died. William was 9 years older than Royal. William and Royal
worked together as brokers at the cotton exchange. They did very well
before Royal died and William continued to do well until the depression.
He apparently lost a fortune but recovered nicely.
William Altreuter is on the left in this photo
from Royal Kenneth Altreuter's album. He is called Uncle Billy in this
album. The others people are not identified.
