Do you know what group is in this picture? Dean Rust, of Fargo and Mesa, Ariz., would like to know.

He obtained the picture from somewhere. But he doesn’t know anything about it.

“I count about 300 men dressed alike, with hats, which make it seem like it was quite a well-organized gathering,” he tells “Neighbors.”

“The group is similar to the barbershop quartet and chorus group that I and my brother Clarence Rust sang with in Fargo for 16 years.”

By the way, Dean adds, “Barbershop-style singing in Fargo has a well-known women’s counterpart called Sweet Adelines. My sister Bonnie has been part of them for 50 or more years.”

Anyhow, Dean says the picture might be of a Nordic singing group, but he’s been unable to prove it.

OK, neighbors, can you tune in with information about this picture? If you can, let “Neighbors” know.
