Men dressed like this over a long period of time but my best guess would be 1920s.

Rob, any chance of your posting a higher resolution image? Yours is file size of only 93 kb (the numbers under the image) while you're allowed to post one of up to 500 kb. As it is Henry's face pixellates badly when we zoom in to do repairs - notwithstanding Mike's valiant effort. :D
