Men couple(s)

Five couples of men posing, Argentina, 1940s or 1950s?

I am grateful to Birthe Havmøller for suggestion that the five couples – with one more person taking the photograph – might be a football team of 11 players creating this much used image. 1940s? 1950s? And in the countryside, perhaps?

I discuss this image, briefly, in a paper I gave in 2016:

“Queer Tango’s ‘Image Problem’: Men, Intimacy and Pictures from the Past” Joint SDHS + CORD Annual Conference, Beyond Authenticity: Pomona College, Claremont, California, USA, 4th November 2016 [Text]:’s_’Image_Problem’_Men_Intimacy_and_Pictures_from_the_Past

What do you belive the copyright status of this image to be?
Ray Batchelor believes: “The image is out of copyright.”
