We were in New Regent Street recently, and with the reopening of the shops I remembered this photo. It was taken about 1945-46 in George Weigel Studio 19-21 New Regent Street. These men were working outfitting the studio when they were "snapped" by George Weigel. "Note" photos on the walls. Left - Henry Kearns, Middle - Unknown, Right - Ossie Collins.
