The boy is dressed in a military uniform, with sergeant's stripes. Private (William) Arthur Edward Jennings, born June 18, 1872, was working as a labourer and residing at 36 Wilson Avenue, St. Thomas, Ontario, with his wife and children, when he enlisted on November 26, 1915, and was assigned regimental number 189480 - see his digitized service file at Library and Archives Canada: http://central.bac-lac.gc.ca/.item/?op=pdf&app=CEF&id=B4821A-S066.

Five views of the interior of the banquet hall at the Engineers Building, 561 Talbot Street, St. Thomas, decorated for an event described on the photographer's storage envelope as a "Machinists' Dance". The Engineers Building (later known as Masonic Hall) was commissioned by the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers (BOLE), designed by prominent St. Thomas architect Neil Darrach, constructed 1908-1909, and officially opened on November 3, 1909. These photographs were probably taken during the First World War, as decorations include flags of nations allied with Great Britain and Canada against Germany, including Japan (note the inclusion of the Ensign of the Imperial Japanese Navy amongst the decoration flags). Image 7402c may show the stylized capital letter O from a display of the BOLE acronym.

Studio portrait of four unidentified First World War soldiers. Two soldiers are wearing Company Sergeant Major rank insignia (three bar chevron, points down, surmounted by a crown), and two are wearing Sergeant Major Bandmaster rank insignia (four bar chevron, points up, surmounted by a crown). According to http://www.canadiansoldiers.com/ranks/staffsergeant.htm, these insignia were used in the Canadian Army from 1900 to May, 1915.
The name "Bloye" is written on the storage envelope. The only person with the surname Bloye in Library and Archives Canada's database of First World War soldiers's attestation papers and service files is Frederick Arthur Bloye, 320851, enlisted at Toronto, Ontario, January 27, 1916: http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/first-world-war/first-world-war-1914-1918-cef/Pages/item.aspx?IdNumber=49539.
The name "Bloye" on the storage envelope for this negative may be a misspelling for "Boyle", and if so, one of the soldiers shown may be John Alexander Boyle, 189648, enlisted at St. Thomas, Ontario, December 13, 1915, assigned to the 91st Battalion, and listed among the memebers of the 91st Battalion who deployed from St. Thomas on June 25, 1916: http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/first-world-war/first-world-war-1914-1918-cef/Pages/item.aspx?IdNumber=59199.

Possibly a son of Pte.

He is listed among the men departing with the 91st Battalion C.E.F. on June 25, 1916, as a member of C Company.
Alternatively, the boy shown in the photograph may be associated with Spr. George Palmer, 189970, born January 9, 1886, living in Highgate, Ontario and working as a labourer when he enlisted on February 10, 1916, also listed among the men departing with the 91st Battalion C.E.F. on June 25, 1916, as a member of C Company.
