Hi Katherine - me again sticking my oar in! I think this photo dates from the mid 1890s or possibly slightly later.

From what I've read, Leg o' mutton sleeves were introduced around 1892/3, and had become less fashionable by the end of the decade, although of course the ladies in the photo may have been wearing older clothes, not necessarily the latest fashions.
