    A handwritten note on the rear of the picture says:

    "B. French" is believed to be Albert Edward "Bert" French (1887-1958). The photo was in Albert's collection and was first seen by other family members after his spouse's death in 1983.

    P and H Trickey have been identified by a French family member who knew them as children as Percy (c1903-1937) and Harold (c1904-1936). Given that they appear to be older than 10-11 years of age in the photo, this dates the photo after 1915, when James Henry French died. This implies that J French Snr is Bert's brother, James Thomas French.
