Looks similar, but the person on the bike isn't dressed as a man - hat with decoration, long coat, low neck rather than a shirt and tie. Unless he's in fancy dress!

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

I'm not sure of that because I remember a pic of same aunty acting a male part in an am-dram play around the same time.

I wish I could find it. I recall that my Mother was in female clothing though!

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 posted one on here some time ago with the title "Is this for real" or something similar of a mock wedding where both men and women were dressed as the opposite sex  ;D
