Hi Peter, great photo! the person 2nd from left is Michael Emanuel Potiri. Michael registered his Refreshment Rooms business under the name of 'Potiri Brothers' in Queanbeyan on 8 June 1917. He left the business at Queanbeyan on the night of 12 September 1919 to study his Leaving Certificate at Christian Brothers, Waverley NSW. He graduated from Sydney University in 1926 with a Bachelor of Medicine, and a Master of Surgery and worked at RPA before establishing his own medical practice on the corner of Norton and Macauley Streets in Leichhardt, Sydney. The person 1st left is likely to be Michael's brother Peter Potiri who ran the business until February 1921.
