Can anyone tell me the date taken.Is  he a military man or from a circus as a trapeze artist he is wearing a medal on his chest.
Arthur Maycock  Parkgate Cheshire
Some of my ancestors came from Little Neston Birch family
Hi - my thoughts are that this is a clearly posed shot in a photographic studio (see backdrop) and that he might be an athlete or if not - the medal could be from a 'games' win, etc, rather than a military medal!  He's clearly dressed as an athlete or performer - if he was military then he would IMHO definitely be wearing his best dress uniform.  Also the coloured cummerband might hint at a victor's 'badge of honour'?  Hope this helps?  Am brand new to this forum as I need my own help but quite experienced researcher into my Family History.  If I can help further plse let me know.  Best wishes - Jonathan B
BARKER (pat) - b William Barker 1801-3? Bolton-by-Bowland (BBB) or ?  M Elizabeth WALKER 2-6-1825 in par church
MARSTON - William E Ldn (mat) 18xx Bethal Gn, Mile End
BEST - S Wales (Cardiff late 19C) before and after based London esp 3 gens Watch/Clock/Chronometer makers Thomas, Christopher, Thomas(2) all Clerkenwell area London

As Jon has said not a military medal. Olympic perhaps.
This looks like a stock photo.
Possibly a gymnast rather than trapeze artist as I would expect
him to be dressed a bit more showy than this if he was.
