This is one of a series of photos of Granton Gas Works taken around the time of the official opening of the gas works in 1903

Here the workers are all lined up for their photo.  What can anybody tell me about the background of this photo?

"I wondered when I looked at that photo that has all the workers in it, how many of those pour souls would end up fighting in the Great War."
