Photo Inspiration for November

This is another photo from my family albums, from the late 1940s or early 1950s. My grandfather Alfred stands on the farthest left hand side. I always thought he had characterful eyebrows. 


I have no idea what this meeting of gentlemen is about. Is it a presentation of awards? What is the circular raised item in the middle? What is the general mood and what do the varying expressions (some smiling, some not) indicate? Let me know what you think.

  1. It does look like some sort of awards presentation.

  2. That circular item looks like an astrolabe used to predict the location of the stars and other celestial bodies. I like his eyebrows too.
