Old Photos

Photos (some of them very old) from Dad's garage. Scanned professionally, but as yet not worked on in Photoshop, so quality will get better. Big question: WHO ARE THEY? As Dad's brother Peter says he doesn't recognize any of the old photos, one must assume they are from Mum's side of the family.
