    Senator John Worth Kern of Indiana, Democratic nominee for Vice President in 1908. See Portrait looks a match. was the Democratic nominee for President in 1908 (and 1896 and 1900) The newspaper headline begins "Gov. Wilson" and has a picture that looks like Woodrow Wilson. My guess is that this is during the 1912 presidential campaign, perhaps at the Democratic convention.

    swanq: Thanks for identifying Kern & Bryan more completely. We'll fix our source data and then reload the more complete description.

    swanq - you are right. The building behind them is Baltimore's Fifth Regiment Armory, and Senator Kern is wearing a Delegate badge on his lapel. So it's the 1912 DNC.
