Gisela and Leopold

Posted to the Alexander Palace Time Machine Discussion Forum by Veronica on 29 March 2010; detail-enhanced (but color not removed) by gogm.

Gisela's puffed, but not leg-o-mutton, sleeves and A-line skirt date this photo to the about 1900. Hats were starting to become wide at about this time. I believe she is wearing a decorated jacket that opens wide over a lace-adorned chemisette that ends with shallow-vee waistline and plain skirt.
