On the assumption that the portly figure, second from left with the uke, is Dale White I can add the following.   Dale White in my time, i.e. prior to 1954 when I moved to Manchester, was a barber with premises in Chapel Street not far from the Jolly Sailor pub. To my knowledge he was a bachelor.  He was well known for his fancy dress and often paraded as an Indian Maharajah during the bonfire carnival.  And he certainly looked the part, no one could touch him when it came to judging the costumes and make up.  His main hair style, to my cost, was short back and sides, very short back and sides, and to this day I insist on keeping my hair touching my collar.  I did once sneak up to Reid's barbers by the post office but the fact that my school cap had hair showing below it gave the game away.

His name was Del White. I believe it was short for Delemar.
