Hello Peter & Wiggy,

Many, Many Thanks for your trouble in making this photo a little clearer.
I take your point regarding the kb size. Unfortunately, that was well beyond my control.
The original photo appears to have been lost and that was what was available to me to post.
Yes, I think it is out of focus the further to the right it is viewed but we have to live with that.

As for whether or not it is the same man, there are 2 different camera angles and in the first photo, Mr Seager appears to be wearing a very large coat so it may or not be the same man.
The second photo possibly shows the man in his 'Sunday best' with a button hole and he may have stood upright for the photo. They both have high cheek bones and the eye set is very similar.

Thank you again, your help is appreciated. regards, jim

Hi all

I think they are the same person, Wiggy. Those cheek bones and shape of face/proportions are very similar. Slope of shoulders are the same too.They are taken from different angles, which accounts for differences.
