1908 Duchess of Fife with daughters Alexandra and Maud of Fife from The Bystander of 6 May 1908

The girls are not yet marriageable given the show of leg. Mama wears a full-length skirt and a short double-breasted jacket in this 1908 W. & D. Downey photo. The girls have shapeless jackets, but mom's jacket is tailored to display her feminine form. The girls will be dressed as women in three years.
