From a medallic point of view, if I stand on one foot and squint, I can just make out his ribbon bar which, I believe, consists of a Queen's South Africa Medal, a King's South Africa Medal and a third medal, probably a long service medal. This would certainly support your assumption that the photo was taken in the early 20th century. To be honest, the medal ribbons are quite indistinct but the white area in the middle is a clear indication that it is a South African pair.
