The teenage Archduchess Valerie appears in the background of this print while Gisela poses with her baby, probably Prince Georg.

Posted to the Alexander Palace Time Machine Discussion Forum by Kaiserin Alzbeta Sissi on 29 January 2010; sepia tone removed by gogm.

Elisabeth's dress is shown in detail; the skirt three layers and her train appears to emerge from the penultimate layer. Little Valerie's dress is midi-length, revealing boot-like shoes.
