Souvenir Saturday: colonial Natal - a snapshot in time

Natal Colonial group early 1900s: a relaxed all-male occasion (a stag party?); attendants include two Africans and one Indian wearing a turban. There are several different kinds of hat in evidence among the group,  Some trouser turn-ups indicate date after 1902 when this fashion feature became trendy. Facial hair is 'in'. The wicker chairs are of an easily-recognisable design much seen gracing Natal verandahs. Photographer unknown.
