Do You Know This Lady?
« on: September 10, 2007, 04:21:09 PM »
Hi there, I posted a topic just like this in Having Fun, but no one has replied. I thought this might be better in this thread, it's more to do with the Imperial Court.

I've recently come into contact with a rather fascinating individual who's great aunt was in fact a retainer of the Imperial Family up until 1905. He has many photographs, but one in particular stands out.
It's one  of a young lady, in Court Dress, with writing on the back (by his great aunt) detailing mostly about the dress itself. If anyone knows who she may be you'd be doing a great service to my friend and maybe even solving something of a family mystery!

Why don't you try posting this in Court Dresses? It's under "Their World and Culture."
