OK, This has to get the award for the weirdest photo postcard! I really do not have a clue what is going on here. There is confetti on the floor so it is some type of celebration. It states on the back "Sylvester 1926." It also states the name of a hotel that I cannot decipher and some other scribble. There is what appears to be a man in drag seated front row right. There are two women holding hands front left and one of them appears startled at the man who seems to be yelling at her. A woman beside that woman appears to be wearing a blonde or white wig. There are a few women with aprons and several soldiers. Can anyone tell from the soldiers outfits what kind of soldiers they are? Aside from possibly being a Halloween party, this photo is the strangest I have ever run across.
Hotel Monopol in Andermatt in Switzerland. New Year's Eve - December 31 is the Feast of St Sylvester.
Thanks to aghcollect and vetraio50 for solving the mystery!
