"Group of boys and young men in uniform commissioned by Mr. R. Grubb" is the title of this shot, and we have nine boys with uniform accouterments in shot. it reminds me of a ditty my mother would trot out sometimes along the lines:
"We are the Boys Brigade,
Dressed up in marmalade,
threehapenny tuppeny pill box
and a couple of yards of braid!"
Is this a Boys Brigade group?
Based on the typically insightful inputs on this image, it is confirmed that this is a group from the Church Lad's Brigade
, an Anglican youth organisation. In this case almost certainly the Christ Church 'company' in Dublin, pictured outside the namesake cathedral....
