    Sorry, back of photo was pale beige-pinkish--Photo sepia. Wrong light but goos photos.
    There is a very slight moustach on the subject shown ( couds be added on. The facial features are female the way I see it. Would be very believable as a pretty woman. I have never seen another photo that stumped me as to SONG ON YOUTUBE "MASCULINE WOMEN, FEMININE MEN"---SO GIGGLESOME "GENDERBENDER"!!)
    1920s, terrific snappy tune--and riotous lyrics--Please listen!

      He's just a very pretty Czech boy.
    4. Celiene Celiene, 3 years ago
      Czech city of Brno.

      Probably 1919 or thereabouts, based on his collar.

      Oops - maybe 1905-6... The key to the date is the symbols on the front. It is prior to 1918.

    12. fleafinder fleafinder, 3 years ago

      That adds to the intrigue in this photo. I don't think a manly male would wear a stud like this-at in his ear, unless he was oblivious to "talk" at the turn of the century (1900) A Czech photo. In our country at that same time we had both male and female entertainers performing on the stage to welcoming audiences who just loved them. SO---why not the same in Europe? In London ,Vesta Tilley was a major draw all over as a man. . An Julian Eltinge a man performing to great applause here in the USA, as a woman ( He even had a NYCity theater named after him.) This photo may be a "impersonator or entertainer" of some kind. Too bad unsigned.
