1880 (?) Princess Beatrice of Battenberg, daughter of Queen Victoria, seated by table by Alexander Bassano

The original caption is, "by Alexander Bassano, half-plate glass negative, 1880?.”

From historysquee.tumblr.com/page/9; altered the dark areas of the sides of the background, leaving the train of the dress alone and removed spots with Photoshop and removed sepia tone.

This photo shows Beatrice’s dress seen in this image and this image also has a substantial train. Middle 1880s dresses were simpler than this one, but Beatrice is a Royal Princess expected to show frills and a grand train whether an aggressive 1880s bustle is being worn - or not.
