Individuals tentatively identified: Clara Mayer (green jacket, 02:37);  Eduard Heimann (bottom right, 03:19); Frieda Wunderlich (upper right, 03:28; right, 05:08; alone in frame, 08:49); Hans Speier (left, 03:36; on right, playing horseshoes, 09:29; shooting arrow to right of Halle, 11:16); Emil Lederer (bending over, 3rd from right, 04:06); Arthur Feiler (2nd from right, 04:43); Alvin Johnson (left, 04:58).
