Image of Victorian pictorial envelope

Pictorial Envelope

Q I am really intrigued to find out more about this envelope. It has Marcus Ward & Co under the flap of the envelope and I thought the "Empress" would be referring to Queen Victoria being proclaimed Empress of India in January 1877. The illustration appears to be hand drawn but unsure as itís so precise. I would love to discover more about the history behind it, can anyone help?
