Stromness(?) Football Team - early 1930s?

This photo includes two people I can identify - my father James Gibson (second from right back row) and William Groundwater (extreme right front row). Therefore I assume that this is a Stromness team but can anyone enlighten me further by adding any names or where the photo was taken? I have two similar photos to add which may help identify the building.

Did William Groundwater (my old headmaster) ever play for a Stromness team? I must say I don't get a Stromness 'feel' from this photograph.
Mr Groundwater retired in 1969; if he was 65 then, the dating of this photo is probably not far out.

Could the player with the ball be Attie Campbell?
