I think the female to male impersonations were generally regarded as fun, whereas men had more difficulty getting away with it,  unless they dressed as a pantomime dame or Charley's Aunt.....   ;D

Great photo there, Carol and Gadget!

I think cross-dressing was frowned upon in those days, unless of course they were theatricals!

To be honest, Gadget, I've been wondering the same thing - I am sure shots like this would have been very popular at the sea-side!

I am so pleased we've solved that one - I really like his work, and was happy to play a part in identifying the signature.  Virtual gold star and big hugs all round!   :)
