Cross-dressers: Amy Bock

Looking dapper but solemn, cross-dresser and criminal Amy Bock poses as a wealthy young sheep farmer named Percy Redwood, about 1909. As Redwood she married her landlady's daughter, and stole from various other people. Bock was already a well-known fraudster with many criminal convictions and her deception was soon discovered. She appears to have only cross-dressed at this time of her life, and otherwise posed as a series of well-educated women.
