Three Generations?

Three Generations?
Brought forward for the vintage Photos Theme Park theme of "in disguise/ in costume" It appears that these ladies are wearing Japanese kimonos. I remember hearing that there was a craze for Japanese "things" in the early twentieth century.

The dog appears to be the same one that is in the doll carriage, pictured with the little girl in the first picture I posted in this series. (Glass plate negatives).
The young woman on the right appears to be the young woman on the right in the previous picnic photo.

This is the second batch of glass plate negatives that I purchased.
I got them in Brattleboro, Vermont, Feb 6, 2012.
I bought five of them - very cheap. The dealer has written "Dummerston, VT" on all of them.

a wonderful photo, especially with the dog getting in on the photo opportunity.
I was wondering if the fashion for Japanese dress had a connection to Gilbert & Sullivan's 'The Mikado', but according to wiki that premiered in 1885, so quite a bit earlier. Perhaps there was another influence in the early 1900s.

My guess is that they're too close in age to be 3 generations, but I could be wrong. I do love their Japanese-style dress, and it appears that their hair was Mikado-style as well! (Cute doggie!)

Such a lovely photo! The women and their clothing are intriguing enough, but the dog adds a playful element to it!

Thanks, everyone!
Lisa, I wonder if that was the influence and it just continued for all those years? Possible, I suppose.
Alan, as I mentioned, the dog is also in the glass plate neg. of the little girl with the pram. Cute little thing!
Ellie, I think if you see the other pics that the younger woman on the right is in, it is possible that she's (say) 26, her mom behind her is 46 and the grandmother is sitting on the left and is about 66.
what do you think?
