Four men having lunch/coffee. The fellow on the lefts has a hat that says Republic Paints and he proudly wears the coat and pants of a painter..perhaps the others are carpenters?

Update from Marilyn ( Granddaughter)
Anton Amundson was my grandfather and Ernest and Joel and Art Amundson were brothers like you found out. Edwin Ronningen was the brother of Emil's wife Marie like you mentioned and also the brother of Anna, my grandmother married to Anton Amundson. So Ernest, Art & Joel were double first cousins to my mother. The farm was originally settled by Amund Smikop Amundson and his wife Ronnaug. One of their daughters Ronnog (Rena) married Augustine Washington Wood and thus the farm became known as the Wood farm when they moved back to Rothsay and lived on the farm. Their son continued to live there and later it was owned by Ernest Amundson and then following his death by Joel Amundson. The farm is in Wilkin County near Rothsay, Minnesota. The house and the round barn are no longer on the property which is still in the family and now is owned by my cousin's son who has built a house there.
