There are no markings on the reverse. I cannot make out the photographic studio name on the front, although I can read Perth.
The photo came to me from the Benn family in Western Australia. He may have been a friend of my great-uncle Cecil George Larsen who was in the 16thBn and killed in France in 1916.
002 51st Battalion
I have a photo of the 51st Battalion from Western
Australia (No names on this photo, but I know my Great Uncle Johan
Thomas BREDAHL - Service No: 3351 - is in it aged 18 years. I think he
is the little fellow second row from the back and third from the right,
he enlisted in Northam, Western Australia.)

04 This photograph was in a collection left by my grandfather, Lt George Spencer Compton, 28th Battalion AIF (Western Australia). Grandfather was in the 10th Reinforcements of 28th Battalion which trained at Blackboy Hill camp and departed Fremantle on 1st April 1916 for overseas.
The edges of the photograph have been faded out but appear to include one or two officers; perhaps at a graduation or awards ceremony.
Unlike one hundred or so other photographs left by my grandfather this is one of only two not annotated with a name date and place.
On the reverse is the name of the photographic studio: 'Ruskin Studio, Perth', so the image is most likely to be that of a Western Australian soldier.
Any suggestions will be gratefully received and researched thoroughly.
