I think this is pre WW1.I don't think young men were wearing these starched collars much after this,also I believe this high neck waistcoat was popular at this time.Around 1910-12 and he looks early 20's to me.

Thanks for your thoughts :)

It was in a collection of family photos - I don't think it's my grandfather or his brothers who would have been 20-29 in 1912 as there's no resemblance that I can see.

I don't know how old he is - mid 20's feels about right - but he's very handsome ;)

Lovely photo!
