Thank you Rob, I truly appreciate your posts, this photo of Shirley is a gem, love the clothes of the era, we can really see the turn of the century where they give us so many images in the Downton Abbey story of the 'Belle Époque' and 'Fin de Siècle' characteristics.

The art that can be seen in the cultural growth, apparel, social attitudes, of both 'periods' that traverse in time and weave into the tapestry that is Downton Abbey. Looking forward to the new season with enthusiasm.

One example that I think illustrates the time that I am referring to is blatantly illustrated here by Edward Munch, ha-ha:
