What an excellent photo. (What’s a “hoopla stall?”)

Is Charles the one leaning on the post on the right, or the younger fella in the left?

I had the same question. Looking forward to the answer.
Yes Charles is the one leaning on the post the others are his wife and children. It is a fairground attraction grow hoops over a item to receive a prize
Ahhhh... now I get it!
Oh! I've played something like that before -- even won a goldfish -- to my mother's chagrin!
