  1. Clicking a couple of the links and reading just a little, this reminded me also of the film Mrs. Brown about Queen Victoria and her attendant John Brown (played marvelously by comic Billy Connolly). Even the colors in the photograph, it seems to my memory, resemble how they lit and staged that movie.

    Good choice!

    Great picture! There is a lady who portrays Queen Victoria that comes to our Dickens Victorian Village each year. So information on the Queen is always interesting.
