I'm not sure of the exact location, but I believe that the photo was taken in Amsterdam. It certainly was taken someplae in the Netherlands. Max van Gelder was a big impresario in those days, and he did a lot to encourage jazz. He was born in the 1870s and died in 1943. I'm not sure if Max van Gelder the jazz harmonica player is related to him or not, but it may be.

I know that, when they recorded in Europe, in Geneva, they were called the World Known Georgians and not just the Georgians. But maybe they did part of their tour(s) as the Georgians, and used the World Known Georgians only for recording, though I heard that they were generally known in Europe as the World Known Georgians. Top bad my great-uncle Ted Noyes isn't in that photo. Maybe he was recovering and the rest of the band were recovering from the night before.

Perhaps if there are any members from the Netherlands, they could translate it. It's 8 pages; so, it might take some time to translate it all. I don't have the link for it right now, but I'll look it up and post it.
