Twins

Do I see a pair of twins near each end of the second last row?

Where's the nicotine?

I count only two cigarettes and no pipes. Certainly unusual.

Pay Up

Love the guy in the bowler hat on the right, with the cigarette dangling. Quite the tough guy. He could get a sidejob as enforcer for a loan shark.

Softer looking than usual

Most of the faces in Hine's pictures have that hard, tough guy look to them.

This crew looks a bit happy and loose by comparison.

Quite a few smiles here.
