Definitely not the Bullingdon Club ….. but what ?

Johnny Walters' stag party?

These stylish young men with their buttonholes, watch-chains, gorgeous neckwear, folded hankies and smoking paraphernalia look as if they were posing for the camera on a special occasion. The photo was probably taken round about 1900 in Dinas. Could they be dressed up for the wedding of  Capt. John Walters (centre)?

I would love to know more about this photo. Who are the other young men? Where are they? What was the occasion ? Can anyone help?

I'm passionate about books, about Oxfam and about making the world a better place. When I'm not filling the shelves in Oxfam Wilmslow, I might be found reading the books I've bought in the beautiful surroundings of North Pembrokeshire.
