This album includes information on and photos of people who did not sign the Bell Farm Visitors Register. This photo probably includes friends of Major Bell (seated far left) who at some point visited the Bell Farm. It is suspected that this photo was taken in Winnipeg after Major Bell left Indian Head in 1896. However, the location for this photo has not been determined.

Based on archival research, we believe that some of the men are as follows, from left to right:
• Major William Robert Bell (1845-1913) – confirmed (Manitoba Club member: 1882-1913) – no doubt about this identification, as we have lots of images of Major Bell on file.
• Walter Frederick Payne (1863-1930) – possibly ?
• Unknown _____ ?
• Thomas William Taylor (1852-1924) – possibly ?
• Walter Reginald Baker (1852-1929) – possibly ???? - (Manitoba Club member: 1881- ___)
• John Haffner (1848-1921) – possibly ?
