Photograph, ca. 1895-1896

I can date this to within a couple of years by the sleeves, which were at their fashionable fullest in 1895 and 1896. 

The photographer's label at the bottom of the picture attributes it to "Talma, 119 Swanston St. Melbourne".  Talma & Co. specialised in theatrical portraits, so it is possible that the elegantly dressed young lady in the portrait had a career upon the stage.
