Cape Town c1950s?

The middle gentleman in the back row is Reverend Hellman. I think first left in the front row might be Moshe Marcus, the brother of the Vredehoek Shul Rabbi Marcus. Could one of the other moustached gentleman, besides Isaac Pachter, be a Koussevitzky? Best Wishes, Errol Derman
Rev Nachum Mendel Rabinowitz of the Vredehoek Shul is third from the left in the second row from the front.
Two away from him in the middle of the row is Chief Rabbi Israel Abrahams, of the Gardens Shul.
I believe it was taken on the occasion of the visit to Cape Town of Rabbi Yosef Shlom Kahaneman, the Ponevezher Rav.
He is seated on Rabbi Abrahams’s left (with a white beard).
Also in the photo are Rabbis / Revs Weinberg, Franks, Malamed, Pakter, Zucker and Lipshitz and Cantor Lichterman.
