annearachne said: The painting you just reblogged of Hampton Court, you tagged with 16th century tags, even though by the clothes of the people in the painting it looks like the 1820s-1830s. Were you tagging for its associations with the Tudors rather than the date of the painting?

orangexocoatl:

I was tagging for Hampton court itself rather than the date of the painting :)

Ah I’ve just checked and I tagged it for historical fashion rather than architecture, I see why you were confused! Changing it now…
