The Grand Staircase at Buckingham Palace State Ball by Eugene-Louis Lami in 1848. Queen Victoria (1819-1901) was the 1st royal resident of Buckingham Palace after the restoration by architects John Nash & Edward Blore. It became the official royal palace of the British monarch on her accession in 1837. She moved quickly to make it suit her needs & personality. She wished visitors to know that once they were coming up the Grand Staircase they were indeed inside a royal palace.

The Staircase of the Opera, by Louis Beraud, 1877. Did you know that up until the early 20th century acting abilities were not important in the opera world, just really great singing. Also, patrons would leave the theatre and come back to hear major arias. I'm glad that is no longer practiced.

Victorian Dancing Etiquette – Kristin Holt | "SHUN THE WALTZ. The waltz is a dance of quite too loose a character, and unmarried ladies should refrain from it altogether, both in public and private; very young married ladies, however, may be allowed to waltz in private balls, if it is very seldom, and with persons of their acquaintance. It is indispensable for them to acquit themselves with dignity and modesty." 1841: Gentlemen and Lady's Book of Politeness by Elisabeth Celnart.

I wonder if that's the winter gardens ballroom. It looks a lot like it but then it could be the tower ballroom.
