These actors are appearing in 'The Bare Idea' - a morale-boosting play performed during the Second World War.
Two Saidman brothers, Reuben and Barnet, worked as staff photographers for the Daily Herald. Their photographs are simply stamped 'Saidman' on the reverse, making it difficult to tell which of the brothers took the photograph.
