Our family has a very similar photo - slightly different poses and no dog. However, on the Wilby Gun Club board there is also a date "9.8.05".
It was obviously taken on the same day. I am interested to know which of the 5 males was Joe (snr) Smith. No relation to my Smith family although my Great Grandfather William Smith had farmed at Peelchelba. I had thought the old man above the sign was Robert Adams and the man below was his son John Adams. Both were from Mansfield and John ran a carting business.
