Even though I suspect the gun, holster and guitar are studio props, you have to GIVE props to this African-American couple who had the nerve to exchange clothes for the photo. It is a man and a woman, as the gentleman in drag has an Adam's apple. The RPPC dates from 1910 to 1930. If they are not using props, this could have been quite a team, musical or criminal. A rare, tough image with lots of cultural resonance today. The first cross dressing African-American photograph, even if done for the photographer only?
