The Belle Époque - 1890 to 1914

Fashion was becoming homogenized in the 1700s and also in the earlier 1800s. This presumably occurred due to mass print media and rapid mail service. One of the phenomena was the torrent of post cards for various regional German royals that seems to have washed over Russian and Spanish family images. Therefore, there are no separate albums for Iberians or Russians.
