Could these be (left to right) William Birkett Casson (1861-1904), Hilton Casson (1858-1941) and George Thomas Casson (1864-1912)?
The figure on the right perhaps could be Hilton Casson as a younger man, when compared with the previous photograph. The occasion of this photograph would seem to be a wedding, judging from the flowers worn in their lapels.
All three brothers were mariners and held Masters Certificates. The occasion of the photograph looks like a wedding, judging from the flowers worn in their lapels. William was Chief Officer on the "Highland Lassie" which was lost in the Bay of Biscay on or after 10 December 1904, having sailed from Swansea for Buenos Aires. George was Chief Officer on the "Highland Brigade" and was found dead in his bunk when called to go on watch. Both ships belonged to the Nelson Line, which was involved in transporting refrigerated meat from South America.
Hilton Casson (1858 -1941), seated right, wearing the uniform of Chief Officer (First Mate). Cap Badges are thought to be those of a precursor to the Blue Star Line. Photograph thought to be dated to c. 1918.
Photo was taken July 1972 when mom, the girls and I came our for a visit. Thanks again for the memories.
If one goes back & forth between #13 & #23, he sure hasn't changed much--has he!
