Boris Milenko, who was living at Kowloon at the time, is at far right, with Nicholas Tonoff and Jim Volgin second and third from left, respectively. The other three people remain unknown.

Exact location also unknown, however, there is a huge banner behind them with the word "STUDIO". The day must have been fairly cold for Hong Kong - all wearing coats or jackets. The photo was printed at Kowloon in 1940/41.
