Sent by Sinclair Hugh in 2014:The photo was taken in Penrhiwceiber, South Wales somewhere around the turn of the century. The individuals are, left, John Hugh (1865-1920, born in Grampound), right, Arthur (1877-1966, born in Creed) and kneeling, Samuel, my grandfather (1872-1943, born in Creed). The three brothers, and a fourth (Louis - you have a photo of him as part of the Grampound Football Club) went to the coal mines and all returned to Cornwall, my grandfather between 1903 and 1904. I know that because my dad was born in So. Wales in 1903 and his younger sister in Cornwall in 1904.
