Franz Backofen of Darmstadt portrays Princess Alice, possibly looking at what seems to be a blurred dog in the foreground in this photo.

Upgrade image from posted 22 July 2017; removed monocolor tint, increased contrast, and removed one large spot from her skirt. This image, other than its size, was identical to the one it replaced before these changes were made. Also posted to Princess Alice’s Albumette here.
