Please see the comments following this post about actual dates. Some of the 1901 postcards of actresses looked dated (as noted), but other images have date issues too.
I'm going to re-post this album, as corrected, and then delete this posting. This is a good example of a peer-review process so I'm going to leave this up for a little longer, even after reposting the revisions.

If I’m violating your interests or copyright, please contact me with a message. I will either delete the image or, preferably, attribute it to you (and add a link to your site as well).
If there is something amiss, such as mis-identification or other errors, please send me a note so I can correct the problem.
I often cannot list the date and/or artist and/or subject because I don’t know it. Please advise me if you know of the date, artist, or subject for an image when I don’t list that information. I’ll add the information you provide and attribute the source of the information to you.

1901 Marie Studholme stage
1901(?) Mary Moore stage
Its dated 1901, but I suspect it came out maybe five-years earlier. Fashion-era.com lists it as "1890s."
1901(?) Maud Hobson
Like Ms. Moore's picture, the sleeves suggest this came out five or so years earlier.
1896 Mrs. Shakespeare by Sargent
It is on the Web as being from 1901, but the sleeves say different.

Except for her very theatrical headdress, she looks like a deb ready to take her bow in the 50s or 60s.
1901 Princess Alexandra
Queen Victoria died in late 1901 so Alexandra was probably Princess rather than Queen when this was painted. She liked to wear snake bracelets, as shown here.

She was Princess Alexandra's daughter.
1901 Princess Margaret Connaught
The future Queen of Sweden as a debutante with her three-feather headdress.
