Unknown Family Photo Taken By Henry A. Chapman of Swansea

I hope I have done this right! This is my first post, I hope their is some way to shed some light on this mystery.
This is a photograph of a member of my family, but I don't know who it is or when it was taken. It may be my Great Grandmother (just a guess) but not sure!
Any help would be appreciated, even just to date the photo :-)

High Street - H. A. Chapman's Photography Studio

Henry Alfred Chapman (1844-1915) set up his shop, photographic studio and his family home, at 235 High Street in Swansea. He served as mayor of the town (1892-3)

As it states on the photo to his majesty the king and Queen victoria died in 1901, it must be dated between 1901 and 1915 when the photographer died
Happy Hunting ;)

Thanks, that very useful! I think that it is my Great Grandmother, as she was in service and was originally from Swansea :-)
