Among a lot of other photos bought the other day are three real photo postcards, one of which shows two 'men' together the other two, the top photo above are the same and show the close up of one of the 'guys'. There are three things written on the back of the photos, one each. They are: "Broncko & Bosko September 1914", "The Only Little Girl I Loved", and "Proof for Half Tone South London Press".
I confess I am at a loss. I keep looking and looking at these and can't make up my mind if they are women in drag (not uncommon at the turn of the century for various cabaret and music-hall turns), or boys dressed up to the nines, presumably also performers. R and I disagree. If you'd like to leave even an anonymous comment on this post to say which you think it'd be fun to see which way people lean.
