    The photograph appears to have been annotated by Donald Strachan, who refers to 'self' and 'Dad', namely John Robert Strachan (b. 1871), master baker. As Donald was born in 1908, and he appears to be around 6-10 years old in this photo, it's likely to have been taken during the First World War. I think that the man in the middle of the back row, referred to as 'George' is George King Strachan (b. 1892), younger brother of John Robert Strachan.
