Not before before , but its one of (or THE) last pictures of Maximilian . In fact, the spanish caption says "Ultima fotografia tomada a Maximiliano" (Last picture taken to Maximilian)

Thank you very much for the bigger and full verssion. I can remember that I watched on a program that one of the hats that he had (like the one used on the photo) still exists, only that it must be in Vienna

Wow! Katenka thank you very much for posting it! I've only seen two before. Is a real pity that the photo isn't so clear, her face looks strange. Is she in a wheelchair?
