The lady is wearing a health corset, that's what they called it at the time. That was 1900.
A lot of theses pictures you have to look at the fashion.
Hope it helps

1/2/2013 2:37 PM It is impossible to establish the location, as the photo was undoubtedly taken in a photographer's studio.
I agree that the year is likely 1890-1900.
The husband and wife are both extremely liberal/assimilated in their clothing, hairstyles and grooming (woman is not wearing any head covering; man has neither beard nor hat). My guess therefore is that the location is one of the cosmopolitan cities of central Europe, such as Vienna, Budapest, Warsaw, or Lodz, for example, but that is just a guess.
