Not a lot of information has been posted on Harry S. Franklyn except that he was a female impersonator from the 1920’s and 1930’s. One of the photos of Harry is a studio photo from Baker Art Gallery of Columbus, Ohio, which would make one think that Harry at least had ties to this community. Would love to hear from someone who has a history of this entertainer.
