I don’t know if Queen Victoria liked to stroll in the gardens, certainly photography wasn’t really at a state where such casual snapshots as strolling through the garden was possible.
It took a long time to form an image, which is why the earliest photos don’t include people – they couldn’t hold still long enough.
When the image taking was down to a minute or 30 seconds, people were posed – with braces and in positions that could be maintained for a long time. Which is why people didn’t smile in the early photos – it would hurt too much to hold it – and having to retake the photo was incredibly wasteful, so you didn’t make a face you couldn’t hold.
So, we are left with the impression of rather grim people.
I hope she got out to wander in the gardens sometimes. I expect it would have brought a smile to her face. It does to mine.
