I'd love to know if this was a vintage theatrical card, much like other cards I've posted, showing male impersonators from the late 1890s to 1910s. This one's from the same era, but since this only lists the photography studio, I'm at a loss as to who these folks are or whether those were their daily clothes or theatrical costumes. Your guesses are appreciated!
