Part of James Gardiner Collection: photograph album labelled ‘Drag’.

He holds a cloth, looking out into the distance, near stone steps and a double-door. He is well- and amusingly-dressed as a parlour-maid. The costume and wig look to have been professionally made, rather than just being hastily improvised. The setting suggests a barracks or army camp
