This is so gay

For sale is an RPPC showing two gentlemen, one with his hand on the other's shoulder, each with cigarettes.

Maybe I'm reading into this, but it looks ever so gay. Sometimes when people post these on eBay, they'll say "gay interest", but we decided to let the picture speak for itself. Then again, it's a different time. Maybe men just put their arms around each others shoulders?

AZO stamp box, circa 1904-1918. The card is divided back, so it is after 1907.

I think they're cousins.

Yeah, that's it - cousins!

Men put their arms around each other for photos today, too! I think the difference is these guys just look so proper, like their posture and how they are holding their cigs.

... or maybe they were just gay. :)
