Not David Jack. Can anyone identify

This is a photo of my late Great Grandfather David Jack born Avoch 1871 who lived at 5 Factory Lane. He passed away 1937.

Many apologies I have posted the wrong picture My cousin Davina sent me an email to say it is not David Jack.
It is certainly a family member and by the bit of stamp in the photo I'd say it is from a seaman's registration card photo. I thought the A Smith written across it was for verification purposes.
If anyone can put the correct name on him we would be very grateful.

Hi Ann,
This same photo was found amongst Dad's { Vincent Jack } paperwork and we were wondering the same. Who is this man? It would be good to know.

Hi Heather I will email you with more details but a man at the Buckie Fishing Heritage site thought that he was a Smith 'bogin' from that area. Annie Davidson visited the Reids in Buckie we are related to at one stage and Davina thinks it is possible that Annie sent the photo to both your Dad and my Mum but we have no idea really if that is so or who he is but he must surely be related for both our parents to have a photo of him.

Donald, Kate, Jean, Margaret, David, Bill, Alecs father?

Hi, this photo is the imagine of my Dad, Donald Jack, 5 factory lane, Avoch. Dad was born 1920. If this photo is not David Jack, my grandad, I'd be very surprised.

Elaine Davie did some scanning of facial features compared with a younger image of David Jack my Gt Grandfather and you are right we now think it is David. I think he aged a lot in his features towards the end of his life as he had TB in his spine when he died and he perhaps was in pain for a while and didn't complain as men in those days were pretty stoic about illness.
