    Those enormous ladies' hats were fashionable in the early 1900s.

    I know now it's a panoramic Photochrome, coloring technique used between 1880 and 1900...i don't know the artist but the place is "Promenade des Anglais", Nice, France :))

    The photochrome process continued to be used beyond 1900, although it had to compete with the newer technology of direct color photography. AJ is correct about the costumes dating to about 1900-1910 - Edwardian/pre-WWI.
