Hotel des Colonies' first owner Alexandre Seisson

I'm researching Hotel des Colonies 密采里饭店 in the French Concession, and came across this beautiful photo of its first owner Alexandre Seisson and the hotel personnel. Incidentally, this same photo is also discussed by Mr Seisson's descendants in the comments to Hugues Martin's entry on Hotel des Colonies in his blog.
