The label affixed to the reverse suggests that this was an illustration for a fictional story and dates the drawing to c. 1900:

"As a possible illustration for a fictional story, Lowell provides three separate views of a social gathering. The dramatic costume silhouettes suggest that these scenes are from the latter part of the Bustle period. As the 1890s progressed, fashion styles developed through shifts in the ready-to-wear market foreshadowing important trends that would emerge in the early 20th Century."
