    No the picture is as scanned, not much adjustment, from the print in my possession. Remember that film emulsions (this was more likely a glass plate) recorded skin tones differently in those days and were not sensitive to some colours. My problem with the guy at the back with the moustache is that he looks a lot like Gordon Brown and I am afraid I might be related!

    It was quite common to do this kind of gender-changing photos for fun around ww1

    This is a really fun photo, but the dates are a bit off. The lady is wearing the uniform of the Irish Free State which were used from 1922-1924
