ZK-ADX photo

A dose of cabin fever is overcoming me as I sit housebound with the teaming multitude of grandkids.
So I have dug this out of the bottomless shoe box.
Make of it what you will - but it is  obviously the Boeing 40-H4 ZK-ADX (c/n CB.8).
Looks like Wigram.
And the gentleman in the middle will be one Rudolph Lysaght Wigley.
Date about late 1935.
ZK-ADX was built in Canada as CF-AMS. It went over to VH-ADX in July 1938 and crashed on 21-09-1939 at Black Cat Ridge in PNG.
