For many of Arthur Henri's images the people are carefully posed in a formal manner but this, while carefully posed, has a sense of informality about it that is quite charming. The lady's hat is a hatorifically fine confection and the gentleman's dress is "country squire" and they do make a handsome couple. The lady's dress looks as though it has a "bustle" which might help with dating?
