Susan Schneider posted a message in the EdinPhoto guest book, asking:

Question

"Does anyone know any names of those in the photo of the 1st Leith Boys' Brigade Football Team 1937 -38   -  in particular the young man third from the left in the top row?

He bears an uncanny resemblance to my son.  My mother believes it may be her brother Bobby."
