    certainly looks like him, and shamus standing beside him, the old guy in bunnet and big coat i recognise tho name escapes me, ten years before i was born but i'd see him standing blethering at the wall near the milldam when going home from school as a wee boy, there was a group of four or five all dressed in bunnets and big overcoats, all ex fishermen that would be standing yarning no matter what the weather was like.
