Here it is unedited:
"THIS IS ACTUALLY MY GRANDFATHER,HE WAS SO GOOD AT DRESSING LIKE A WOMAN THAT WHEN HE TOOK MY FATHER TO SCHOOL ALL HIS CLASSMATES WOULD GREET HIM AS MRS,CUNBERG,IM SHOCKED TO FIND PICTURE AS IT WAS HIDDEN VERY WELL IN ATTIC,MY FATHER WAS NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT BUT SAID HE WAS A WONDERFULL MAN,"
Doing the math, I figure that Mrs. Cunberg was out and about in the early 20th Century. Her hairdo and clothing indicate that her photo may be from the 1920's, which was an era of more liberal thinking, especially in regards to non-traditional gender roles.
So it was a good time for Mrs. C to be open about her gender. She could have been a role model for the folks epitomized in the popular song of that era "Masculine Women, Feminine Men."
