1869 Le Monde Illustre - The trip of the Empress and prince Imperial visit to Napoleon I's birth place at Ajaccio on 1 September

Empress Eugenie and a nearby lady wear bustles in this 1869 print of the Empress taking her son to a Napoleon museum at Ajaccio, Corsica. The show would be over in a year.

The bonnet-like head covering appears to be a scarf.
