This is a scene from the 1905 Australian silent film "The Story of the Kelly Gang".
It was the first feature length film ever to be made.
What many people don’t know however is that Kate Kelly was, in some scenes, played by a man in drag. This was one of those scenes.
This is for AriaKit. Many of her ancestors were involved in making this film, and a couple even appear as extras.
No one officially knows who is playing Kate in this scene, so I’m just gonna say that’s one of Eleanor’s relatives as well.
BE PROUD OF YOUR CROSSDRESSING GREAT GREAT GREAT GRANDFATHER, GIRL!
