I don't think there's someone as important as Collins in the photo I've chosen, but I'm happy that I found a pix that features a group of men wearing hats and overcoats. They are gathered on what seems to be a very large woodpile. I can't figure out why they're dressed so well or what brought them together in such a location, but I date this photo in the mid-1920s. By the way, that's my paternal grandfather Fred Belair (1889-1991) in the light overcoat in the bottom centre. In those days, he worked on the railroad in Ontario, Canada and as an ironworker building bridges in Ontario and Quebec. I don't know if either of these occupations is the raison d'être for this manly gathering.
