You can guess the date to be around 1860 by the distended crinolines and full sleeves.

I've been steadily moving down the albums. I'm figuring out what tags to apply to the images in the Queen Mary album. I posted lots of images of her in gorgeous jewels in that album, what she is famous for today. But its a fashion history album, so I'm trying to get as much dress into posted images as possible. I deleted several images of Queen Mary for that reason. I also added some images of her in day dress. Portraits of her in evening or court dress and jewels seem to be much more common than images of her in day dress.

I did the same to images in the Alexandra-Dagmar-Thyra album, but there are lots of images of Queen Alexandra in day dress as compared to Queen Mary. It is amazing to see dresses "as worn" on gorgeous women with unlimited clothing budgets compared to fashion plates of the eras.

When I'm done with the Queen Mary album, the next album will be recent past and present. It will not be easy locating the sources ("sourcing") many of those images.
