Unknown people and places

All of these photos have a definite Walton connection, but I do not recognise or have any firm details regarding them.
If you recognise any individual or scene I would be very pleased to hear from you.
Many of the portraits, which were the work of Thomas Brooke around the end of the 19th century, could be holidaymakers from London who came to Walton on the steamships.
