The man in the hat is not my great grandad. In the Wheelwrights shop photo GG Scales is sitting on the far back left, and in the bleachers picture he is the man on the right. So if the other guy (above) is the same in both photos, it means both depict Bermondsey Borough co-workers.

Are they brothers?

Ah, OK. I'm not confused any more.

No they're not brothers. He only had one sibling, a sister.

I'm really sorry to go against the grain, but I don't think they're the same man.  The man in the front facing photo looks as though he has an underbite and heavy jawline, whereas the man in profile doesn't.
