She looks rather regal!
Lisl: She looks as if she is used to being waited on

I love her hair pile.
Lisl: I wonder if it is all hers, Ray!
You certainly have some impressive ancestors Elisabeth.
Lisl: Watered down now, Frank!
Tout une époque restitué par ce document familial.
Je ne me lasse pas de découvrir ce genre d'image.
Lisl: Whenever I get out my old family photos, it gives me a thrill
I love the photography of that era!
Lisl: I have been trying to work out when this was likely to be taken
Elle était très élégante.
Lisl: Years of pampering, perhaps
It's fantastic to have kept photos that are so far back in time. The Victorian style is well reflected in your great-grandmother's clothes
Lisl: Yes - I think this might have been taken in the 1890s

Looking straight at the lens but unsure of this modern contraption
Lisl: Yes - she does look a little bewildered, and frail
OMG. Now you're really going back in time, Lisl.
Lisl: I can go even further!

So very different from the portraiture of today. I had to see where Navarre was; I had a feeling it was in France but I see you have Spanish blood in you.
Lisl: Sort of..... I think Navarre had its own Kings until the French Revolution

She does not look very comfortable here, Lisl..... I can see that she thinks: "all that modern hassle, that is nothing for me"...
Sometimes I flip through old books and gives a smile on my face.
Lisl: She does look a little uneasy, Astrid

Amazing photograph and I like the exotic sounding names.
Lisl: Here is another - she was married to Adolphe Ferdinand d'Albert

Moi, c'est ma grand mère qui est née à  cette période
JP
Lisl: A shared epoch
A matriarch by the look of her Lisl. a very grand lady
Lisl: She does look good. She lived for two years after her Daughter (my Grandmother's Mother) died in Chelsea Workhouse. What a contrast! There is a story there.

Oh, what a noble family -what a wonderful, old photograph! Marie is right - Victorian style!
Lisl: Watered down, Philine!
The feeling that she was a matriarchal peeson in the family at that time seems to come over quite strongly.
Lisl: She is the furthest I have researched on the French line, Brian
D'Albert- I had guessed it was French. She did very well to not move.
Lisl: In fact they did emigrate to England some time after the 1860s
HOw wonderful to have such a photo ! Friendship
Lisl: My old photos are some of my most cherished things, ruthie
good scanning of the portrait of your Great-Great-Grandmother... you are fortunate to have found it Lisl....petersmile
Lisl: I have some old treasured photos which have been passed down
Une magnifique femme !!
Lisl: I think she knew it!
Judging from the photos you've posted so far, your relatives look to be people of means, Lisl.
Lisl: During the mid 19th Century perhaps, but not later, Beverly

They were also people and they also lived (all highs and lows included). This is what I often think when seeing such old portraits.
Lisl: I wonder what she was really like - she actually looks vulnerable

I love old photographs like these. The severe expressions are due to the fact that person being photographed had to sit still.

Photography then was not as it is today.
Lisl: I cannot find any family likeness
that is quite some thing to be able to go back that far up photographically, Lisl.
Lisl: Yes - I have one photo which is slightly older, another great-grandmother
Sit still and don't blink, quite an ordeal. i wonder what length of exposure was needed.
Lisl: I wonder - she looks frozen in time
She has a slightly startled look! What happened to the Contes d'Albert - are they still around?
Lisl: As far as I know, Adolphe Ferdinand d'Albert, my great-great-grandfather, had only two daughters. I don't know if the title went else where, and can find nothing about it
