A photo of Frank G. Ellis, taken at a photo shop in Cape Town, South Africa. Frank was sent to South Africa by his father after getting into some serious trouble in Kentucky. His father got him to New Orleans where he boarded a sailing ship bound for South Africa under an alias, Frank G. Ellis. His birth name was James Greene, son of Dr. Wiley Greene and Maggie Curran. He was a colorful person.


Filipe Medeiros Great photo! You rarely see men from this era smoking cigarettes. I wonder if it was because he was abroad.
