From the sleeves, this would be from 1903-04. The woman second from left in the front row has the fashionable sleeves with fullness at the bottom, while the other women seem to be less up to date in sleeves more typical of 1900-02. See "Costume in Detail: Women’s Dress 1730-1930" by Nancy Bradfield, "Victorian Fashions: A Pictorial Archive" by Carol Belanger Grafton, and "Victorian and Edwardian Fashions from 'La Mode Illustree'" by JoAnne Olian for clothing of this period.
