I would appreciate if someone could help date this photo. The flag suggests it might have been taken during one of Victoria's jubilees.

thanks,

Peter

The ladies are all wearing leg of mutton sleeves. These were popular from the mid 1890s onwards, which might then suggest Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee in 1897. Have you the name of the photographer (on the mount of the picture )? you could check in trade directories when they were in business to see if it tallies
