Help identify Swedish men

The below photo was sent by Anders Nilsson from Bastad, Sweden, in the hope that someone would be able to help identify the Swedish men in the photo.  Anders plans a trip to Odebolt in the future to research information on his ancestors.

Click the photo to enlarge it.

Sitting from left: John Monson ... Olander "Ole" Johnson ... Unknown...Unknown

Anders' grandfather was Julius Nilsson/Nelson, who returned to Sweden in 1897; Julius' brother is Anton Nilsson; cousins are John Monson and Ole Johansson/Johnson (married "Anna" in Odebolt on Jan. 23, 1901).  One or two of the "unknown" could be brothers to Ole: August Johnson and Nils Johnson.

The photo was taken at Frey's Studio, 3rd and Main St. in Odebolt, between 1893 and 1898.
