      This is a really beautiful portrait of three very fine ladies; they must have been real head-turners. I see a likeness with the other portrait in the studio, the one on the right of the picture?

      They are very beautiful but I only have the name for one of them unfortunatley....

      Well, if they are sisters, do we know where/when the picture was taken? Maybe they could be found in the census records? Or Church records?

      I am not all that up on dresses and history, but seems to me this is late Victorian, 1890-1900, and so they would be in the 1880/1890 census records. They are probably age 16 to 20.

      Could very well be I don t know........ I ll send you a pm if thats ok?

      Fine, I will check though some other pictures and some Victorian books as well as a book I have on fashion through the ages.
