Victorian Illustration: A Woman With a Little Dog

It is a lovely day for a walk in the park for these ladies and their young children. There's just one thing, though. Who is this woman? There's certainly money in her world, enough to keep her looking up to date and comfortable, no matter the weather. Her parasol seems out of place in the picture, unless she's trying to preserve her white skin, as so many ladies did then. One good question might be, "But for whose eyes?" Is she a "kept woman"? All her accessories spell "French dressmaker," or "French Maid." A curiosity, no?
Happy Creativity!
