1865 (6 May) Princesses Marguerite and Blanche d'Orléans by Camille Silvy

Paul Frecker's biographical sketch of the two Ladies is a tale of missed opportunities and dashed hopes for each generation caused by a member of a previous generation.

From Paul Frecker; sepia tone removed (and added back at the margins) and image size increased by half by gogm.

Marguerite wears with reduced quarter length sleeves and no visible bertha a dress decorated with bordered stripes over a symmetrical polka-dot pattern.
