Gloria and BW Strattan

This is Benjamin W. Strattan and his trotting horse, Gloria. Notes on the back of the photo say that it was taken between 1913 and 1920. Per the 1910 Census, that would make Benjamin between 78 and 85 years old, as he was born about 1835. I don't know when Gloria was born.

They are standing on Main Street in front of the Strattan building, which he owned. Looks as if Benjamin was proud of both the building and the horse.
