Highland Park Retiral

Highland Park Retiral (date tbc - 1970's?)

Original photograph taken by Charles Tait, please do not reproduce without his permission

I'm trying to trace who the gentleman is holding the barometer and when it was taken so I can log it in the Highland Park Archive, any help appreciated

I have a collection of photographs from this event including the gentleman's wife if anyone is interested
