Alexandra colored postcard by Mayall

Posted on the Alexander Palace Time Machine Discussion Forum by royal_netherlands on 31 August 2006.

Princess Alexandra wears a crinoline with pagoda sleeves thoroughly in keeping with early 1860s style. This photo can be dated to about 1863 because sleeves began shrinking in 1864.
