Can you identify the soldier's uniform? I am wondering where this photo would have been taken. The back of the photo is posted a bit below (89544)
Thank you

1/20/2021 4:54 PM I am not at all convinced that it's a military uniform. It very likely was just livery, here I think of coachman. It looks like a photo from Europe, possibly just before the war.
1/21/2021 12:17 PM I agree that it probably is not a military uniform. My guess is that the fellow was driving the coach in the photo (maybe horse drawn coach? Or, perhaps a car?) The fellow could be a family member, or someone hired for the day

Since some of the ladies have corsages, and one has a bunch of flowers, I think it was a celebration of some sort.

Looks like 1920's or early 1930's, guessing from hemlines.

Is there any wording on the photo indicating a photographer's name?
1/21/2021 1:04 PM I am not sure but it looks like the boy third from the left is wearing a boy scout hat and uniform (Polish scout - harcerz).
Date - 20-ties or 30-ties.
Definitely not in the Soviet Union.
