Greetings To Absent Members

UNKNOWN GROUP PHOTOGRAPH (Early Twentieth Century)

Whenever I acquire a group photograph of unknown origin I try to work out what united the group being photographed. It might be the same place of work, the same school or college, or a shared membership of a club. In this case it looks as though it might be the latter - greetings are being sent to absent members.

The next thing I do is to focus down on the faces. What stories are there? What pasts and what futures?
