Autochrome, described here, was an early color photography technique. Lionel de Rothschild was a practitioner, better known it seems for breeding rhododendrons then photography.

Lady Helen's dress has a waist band without a trace of a vee line. She wears a flower bedecked wide brimmed "Merry Widow" hat over what appears to be a bouffant coiffure.
