I've seen photos of German/Prussian officers with short flattops as early as the 1880's. Even though the photo was taken in Paris, the model looks like he could be a German soldier.
I agree. His clothing even reminds me of some Alpine outfits I've seen.

As I say below, such haircuts were not uncommon in continental Europe at the time. Madame Curie's husband Pierre had a flat top. But in the English-speaking world this was apparently not the case.
