Where, When, Who?

Thank you to David Bain for allowing me to reproduce the photograph above.  David tells me that:

-  these photos were taken probably in the mid-1950s.

-  the photos may have been taken with his dad's Kodak 620 box camera.

-  his dad appears in the photo above.  Other names not known.

-  the photo may have been taken at McLachlan's cooperage.

-  his dad also worked at Murrays, Okells (Isle of Man) and Caledonian Distillery (Haymarket, Edinburgh).
