Sr. R-

Here's this nerd's analysis: the life-expectancy for a newborn male in 1890 was about 40 years, about 44 years for a female. In 1950, it was 66 years. In 1970, it was 67 years. (These are assuming survival to age 5, which is a lot more common today than it was in 1890.)

So, back-of-the-envelope, at 35-ish years old today (born ~1970), you're about the same age as Bobby (~1950), but a whole lot younger than the Marschallin (~1875).
