Mr Tochatti was James Tochatti 1853 -1928, merchant tailor. Mrs Tochatti was his wife - Louisa Tochatti 1856 - 1927. Louisa was one of my grandfather's cousins. What I know about the Tochatti's is mostly down to my own genealogical research. But a good article about James appeared in the magazine of the William Morris Society in the US in 2017 so I'll provide a link to that below (page 25). From the photo of James in the article it looks like he could be the guy standing 3rd from the left.
