Is this photo of the 3rd reinforcements, 14th Infantry Battalion?

Thought to be the 3rd Reinforcments of the 14th Battalion, courtesy of Jenny Fawcett.
 The above photo was recently the subject of a blog post by Jenny Fawcett, who hopes to identify the unit involved with the help of descendants of the men in the photo.  She believes it is the 3rd Reinforcements of the 14th Infantry Battalion.  You can see her original post on her blogpost Mystery WW1 Photo: 3rd Reinforcement 14th Battalion AIF? together with a transcription of their Embarkation Roll

I was interested to note that the Embarkation Roll included two local men included in my database: Gladwyn Garnett of Ascot Vale and William Kelly of Essendon.

I was also interested to note the similar background to the photo  of another one I have been given with a view to identifying the group.  I haven't started on it, but it would be useful to identify the location the photo was taken, so if anyone knows or has seen something similar, both Jenny and I would be very interested to know of it.
