The sitting man looks serious yet the crossdresser isn’t afraid to smile. An interesting picture from the 1910s raising more questions than it answers.

Two gentlemen on a grinning Paper Moon

I’ve been wanting to add a ‘paper moon’ to my collection. The moon is so small these two buddies are almost on top of each other.  And what a toothy grin!

Two more examples of gents with paper moons here and here.

I need to find out where this paper moon craze came from. They were found in amusement parks and people loved them.  This Pinterest page is worth checking out.

‘Mary’ is so wrong!

1905 Mary with the umbrella. Postcard. Private Collection.

First of all, this isn’t Mary, more like Marc in a skirt and wig. This postcard got me in stitches. Wrong Mary is, on so many levels! The picture is only half of it, the text is priceless. The umbrella looks quite threatening too.

Photographer: Robert McCrum. 1905.

We’ve come a long way in a hundred years’ time. This RPPC I found on eBay. I was tempted to bid for it because it’s just so cute, but I’m not gay (obviously…lol); someone else would appreciate it more than me. I’m very happy for my friends who will finally be able to marry in all U.S. States


The Cosy Two

A cute tintype found on eBay of two gents being cosy together. Once again, the one on the left is wearing a fancily arranged neck tie.
