It is thought that there were six Weiss brothers: David, Solomon, Samuel, Morris Aaron, Jacob (Yaakov Yitzchak) and Bernard and one sister -- Rose Weiss who married Chaim Mandel.  All but Bernard were married with children.  Five of the six brothers emigrated from Galicia (Austria) to the USA -- David, Solomon, Samuel, Morris Aaron and Bernard. There was also a brother Jacob (Yaakov Yitzchzk) Weiss who stayed in Galicia (near today's
Sanok, Poland), however, most of his children came to the USA.   David Weiss settled in Tennessee and Solomon, Samuel, Morris Aaron and
Bernard in New York City.  Details of three of the 4 pictured men are unknown.  Perhaps the two on the ends are younger brothers or nephews. 
The photo may have been taken in July, 1930 when Solomon Weiss died in New York.
