I have mixed feelings about this. Its your photo, so do as you will, but please only alongside the original, noted as your interpretation. Inventing things to suit your own narrative should only ever be the artistic interpretation.... with the original remaining in tact for the future.... because who knows what may be possible?
Its not that many years that, what we do now, was the stuff of science fiction :)


edit: the hay rake had crossed my mind too...

I had a look at the tif but on the face of it, for me at least, couldn't see that there was any more information to glean than has already been shown. Nevertheless it has been an interesting thread to follow.

I've not done anything with it except a curves adjustment. I don't know the forum rules on this, but maybe you could upload the tif to 'Dropbox' and post a link here.
My first instinct is that these are farm hands. Probably fruit pickers.

However..... there are quite a few Ernest Revells born in the early to mid 1900s so take a bow.

The only Ernest Revell I found in the north, in a suitable time frame, was registered in Glanford Brigg (Scunthorpe) in 1905.

As the postcard appears to be intended for 'Master Kevell'.........does that turn up anywhere?

I think the Abraham chap was next door, different business. Just prior to starting his career as a full time musician, my dad worked for the Maypole for a few months after leaving school at the end of the 1930s. 60 hours a week for 12/6d (as he never tired of informing me...lol).
