Title:
Postcards of female and male impersonators and cross dressing, 1900-1931, 1955
Repository:
Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections
Collection Number:
7778
Abstract:
Postcards portraying cross-dressing and female and male impersonators in France, Sweden, Austria, Spain, Belgium, the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany, Italy, and Romania. Postcards include photographic and photomechanical prints, some hand-colored. All are printed between circa 1900 and 1930 and depict performers on amateur, café-concert, music-hall, and legitimate stages at the high-point of cross-dressing as a form of entertainment. Many depict gallant visual narratives of women being wooed by other women dressed as men. Additional postcards include humorous images, popular genre narratives, promotional portraits of theatrical and music-hall male and female impersonators, as well as World War I POW camp theatrical productions. Two postcards are credited to female photographers, Ilse Magenmiller (German) and Jessie Westbrook (American). Sets of postcards depict narrative sequences, including Joan of Arc, Les Cerises, Chasé-croisé, Idylle à Trianon, and Une Amourette Louis XV. One such sequence, Pierrot et Columbine (circa 1900), portrays a sexual ending with Columbine represented nude (in a pink body suit). Male and female impersonators featured include Robert Bertin, Jeanne Bloch, Leopoldo Fregoli, Monte Verdi, Louis Vernassier, Sarah Bernhardt, Gaby Deslys, John Graffton, Betti Kuhn, Hetty King, Zena Dare, Vesta Tilley, Winifred Ward, and Huntley Wright, among others.

Complete series of six postcards showing an enormous egg in front of a painted backdrop of a bucolic landscape. Over the series, the egg opens into left and right halves to reveal a woman dressed as an 18th-century male aristocrat who pays court to a woman dressed as a female aristocrat. Postmarks show the cards were mailed successively during the course of two months, with a message on the final one in the photo-narrative stating, "Thanks, this is the last one." The dates and inscription suggest how such series were sometimes used to sustain interest in a friendly correspondence over time. Postage stamp and postmark on one corner on verso of each card.

Lefort; signed on recto of each card: five signed G.M.; one signed Germaine. Brief message on lower right corner of recto of each card, two in English, the rest in French.

Scope and Contents
Three postcards (nos. 2, 3 and 4) from a series of unknown length recounting episodes adapted from the melodramatic novel Les Deux gosses (Jules Rouff et Cie., 1880) by the popular author and playwright Pierre Decourcelle (1856-1926). The "two kids" of the title are Fanfan, the son of a diplomat carted off and raised by a married pair of petty criminals, and Claudinet, the ragged natural son of the couple. Decourcelle subsequently adapted the novel as a drama; in an 1896 production at the Theatre de l'Ambigu in Paris, the characters of the two boys were cast as trouser roles for young actresses, with Fanfan played by Mlle. Melo and Claudinet by Mlle. Reye. In the postcard series, the models for the two boys likewise are male impersonators.

Scope and Contents
Historical scene showing Joan of Arc telling the dauphin of France that he will be crowned king at Reims. As is conventional for iconography of Joan during her period of combat, she wears men's clothing in this case, an elaborate doublet and riding boots. Conversely, this image steps outside the convention by including a halberd-bearer accompanying Joan; the footsoldier is played by a male impersonator. Inscription: "Addressed to Lucien Renault; signed "Ta soeurette [illegible]".

Scope and Contents
Complete series of eight postcards portraying key moments in the history of Joan of Arc. Each card has a caption indicating Joan's presence at a particular place, along with a date. The first postcard shows her dressed as a simple shepherd girl hearing mystical voices; the next five show her as the savior of France dressed in full armor, with a sword and battle standard, but with the long hair of a woman; the seventh shows her "devant ses juges" wearing a simple man's doublet; and the final card shows her forcibly returned to women's clothing, wearing a white gown while tied to the stake and licked by flames.
