Looks like the taller chap is doing a bit of weight training?

The lad on the left looks like he has a towel on his shoulder, like seconds at boxing have. Was the taller lad a boxer perhaps, and his brother helped him train (hence the barbells)?

Might be "purring"

I wonder what size chest the lad on the lefts trousers are ? .....he wears them higher than Simon Cowell !

Yes I did notice the clogs. William on the right was a Clogger in 1934 and a Labourer in 1940. Leonard got some disease that distorted his face and made his lips really thick, on the 1911 census he was classed as an imbecile and died a few years later
