Attention, "abbigail" and your post #3:    Please reconsider the location of this photo as you have given!  I am certain that the "Standart" looked nothing like this location. Consider the stone/concrete flag-stone walkway, the reflected arch, tree, etc.  Perhaps try the arcade of the Imperial Palace courtyard/etc. in Lividia?  Regards,  AP

Ah, you're right. The link said it was the Standart.
It does looks more like Livadia. Thanks!

I believe it's the same day as the photo of Olga and Tatiana in a door way and one of Tatiana where you can see the shadow of the Tsar
taking her picture...thanks for the size of that photo abbigail! Love it! Seems to me,  girls dressed in white + columns = Livadia.
Title: Re: Olga OPhotographs IV
Post by: RHB on March 24, 2010, 02:42:02 AM
which one of Tatiana... i must never of noticed Nicholas' shadow? Then again, I probably don't recognize a lot of things in other photos as well until it's pointed out.

Lord yes, very similar. Sometimes in pictures of them when young, you have to identify them based on Olga's  wider forehead or Marie's wider jaw! The photo of Tatiana with Nicky's  shadow was published in the Robert Massie bio of N & A 40 years ago ..the caption makes a note of it.  I have seen the photo since, but the Tsar's shadow is often cropped out and you just see Tatiana. It's funny, because you can see his index finger is pointed up ...meaning " now, stay still" T looks fairly annoyed...perhaps that's why she'll sometimes frowns while taking photos...you had to keep very still! lol!

I couldn't agree more. I love to see big files. Makes the photos easier to draw too. I might have to do this one...thanks again for posting. About the dress, I wonder if they wore lace over garments...even at this stage. I know they did as children...that is,  wear a colored shift and a lace dress over it...so the color would show

1913 August, to be precise. According to Bulla's atelier.  ;-)

Olga's diary mentions by name the horses that she and Tatiana rode during their regimental exercises on 5 August 1913:

At 10:30 the two of us in uniforms went to the training grounds. We rode on horses: I rode on Regent, T[atiana] on Robino.

Indeed, but this horse is not Regent. Both of Regent's  back feet had  white ankles. So perhaps this is just a photo shoot?
...or  Olga changed horses for the review. At the review she is riding the horse with two white back feet

Here's  terrific footage of the review

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-si1gMtPNM&feature=channel#movie_player

You can often pick out Olga because, as I mentioned, her horse, Regent,  has two white back feet .  You can see the girls ride up behind their father and smile at each other at 3:40 on the right hand side of the screen. Of course the film is from the fabulous  tashusik!

Dust_of_History, thank you for posting that photo of Olga giggling with the patients! Wonderful!
I have always loved this photo of Olga. In it, I feel,  one can clearly see the woman the world lost and  so it's  a heartbreaking image as well as a beautiful one. In this moment captured, she seems at peace with her ablity to see the import of events perhaps more clearly than many around her. imo, there is considerable power in this glaze. Olga Nicholaievna was a remarkable person.

This looks like Lavardia and Easter...things were not as buttoned down there than at AP. I believe it's a lady in waiting...certainly not a sister. The lady looks a bit older than Olga imo. They both seem to be amused about something....Olga may, or may not, break up an second and join the lady behind in giggling. Just my speculation
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: nena on May 03, 2010, 03:12:48 AM
Imperial family visited Livadia in autumn of 1913 and in spring of 1914. My best guess is 1914. However, there is fuller version, long-length one. And yes, pillar matches to be the Livadia's one.

I'm guessing this was photoshopped. The body looks more like a painting, and Olga's head was probably cropped from one of the 1914 formals.

I can't quite make it out either, but I don't think it's a grave marker. The imperial family's pets' graves were marked with small granite pyramids.

'the cape of good Sasha'....so what can that mean? Thanks Ally and Sarushka  for the information. There does , oddly, seem to be a scarf on the bush in front of the sign and they seem quite purposeful in their pose. The sign had meaning for them . Was there a  lull between burial and the granite pyramids got installed? Lord knows.

You know, we're probably way off, they might have just been innocently walking through the children's island (that was where it was taken) and were stopped and had to go through the whole 'stand still for the photograph' gubbins.

It was part of an informal series taken at Peterhof around 1913. All four girls are pictured in that window individually, as well as in pairs: O/M and T/A. The set's been posted all at one time somewhere, but I have no idea now what thread they might be in.

They are both pretty well known...and it's a pity we can't found a better version of the first one picture, since Olga looks really as a woman in it.
RealAnastasia.
Yes, all we have right now this that sceen shot from a video. This photo  was used on a tiny stamp sold for charity during the war...and that quality isn't any better!

Firstly...I think Olga had a great smile, too. I love this picture of her:

Secondly, I have a home made photo album of the Romanovs, too, RHB! I have run into that ink problem many times, very vexing, eh?
And thirdly, that picture is photoshopped, someone posted it on another thread and Grand Duchess Ally confirmed that it was her work. That's a shame it's for sale on ebay as a genuine photo...but it would easily be mistaken for it by someone not well versed in Romanov photos; it's a very good photoshop job.

Re Reply # 122:  I bring this up, IMO, only as a thought to ponder, "Sarushka."  Since the sailor is in such close/"protective" contact with the Grandduchess ON, is it possible that he may be Ivan D. Sednev (uncle of Leonid Sednev), as Ivan D. Sednev was  1.) a sailor on the "Standart," and (2.) appointed as "footman" to the grandduchesses? It appears that this sailor has a thin moustache, as did Sednev.  If my memory is accurate, there ARE identified photos of Ivan Sednev on this forum (in his seasonal "navy blues", if I recall correctly), but he is wearing his cap, thus I have nothing "bareheaded" with which to compare.  Sednev was recommended for his position by Klement Nargony, a fellow "Standart" sailor and one of the "(protective)uncles" to the Heir. I have seen this still photo before, however I am not certain of the year, but seeing the apparent (older) age of the Grandduchess ON, it would seem to be within the appropriate frame of time for the two to be together in a photo, since Ivan D. Sednev served the grandduchess all the way through, and ultimately to, Ekaterinburg (until he was arrested and executed with Nargony).   Regards,  AP.
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: Sarushka on August 09, 2010, 09:01:20 PM
Interesting thought. I don't think I've ever seen a photo of Sednev, so I couldn't say.

Re Reply # 124:  Thanks for the reply, "Sarushka."  I don't have a photo of Ivan Sednev at my fingertips, so I'll do some searching here when I get a chance, and post the reference/location.  I do know that there is one or two of him from that time that is illustrated on the YouTube mini-documentary, " Relatives Looking For Ivan Sednev."  Another poster is surprised at his apparent age, but it is to be remembered that Sednev and Nargony were ship-mates on the "Standart", with Nargony most likely being a year or so older, and preceeded him in employment with the Imperial Family.    Regards,  AP.

Post by: Sarushka on August 09, 2010, 09:20:20 PM

Maybe you're thinking of Leonid (Leonka) Sednev, the kitchen boy, who was only about 14 at the time of the IF's murders? Ivan was the boy's uncle.
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: aleksandr pavlovich on August 09, 2010, 09:23:45 PM
And to make things a bit more confusing, Leonid's patronymic was "Ivanovich" (one of the minor "mysteries" that surround "The Kitchen Boy").  AP.

I was aware of Leonid being nephew of Ivan... I just wondered how old was Ivan by that time of revolution, if Leonid was about 14, I imagine he would be, idk, 30 at least? Sarushka, AP, do any of you know more about Ivan? If you could send me a link, it would be great :)  Thank you

  In reply to "Sarushka" and her Reply # 124:   I now have the references that I was seeking about Ivan Dimitrievich Sednev.  On the thread "Leonid Sednev," refer to Reply # 38, December 2,2009 where a forum member, who had apparently documented knowledge of Sednev, gives his life span as born 1886 and executed 1918. Thus he was 32 years old, more or less, depending on his month of birth. In the same thread in Reply # 44, there are two photos from the same forum member of Sednev in his navy "blues."  The second one (posing alone in uniform) is the one (and I believe that I remember correctly) that his present-day descendants have, in a book published on well-remembered citizens of Yaroslavl Oblast. I believe it was published in the 1980's. I suspect that no English translation of the article/book is available.
      Those newly interested might wish to review the pages of the thread on "Leonid Sednev" on the Forum here (as we may be getting somewhat off-topic).  Ivan is mentioned more than a bit. At the time of his execution, Ivan D. Sednev was married, with 2 or 3 small children. He had seen the turbulent times coming and had earlier sent his family back home to his native oblast.  His nephew, Leonid, elected to remain with Ivan.     AP.

I don't think that pic was taken in 1901. I would say 1899 photosession with the newborn Grand Duchess Maria.
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: Sarushka on October 06, 2010, 09:43:01 PM
I think it's 1901. IMO she looks too old for 1899, but also Olga's hairstyle doesn't seem to match the 1899 session. In 1899 her hair was parted down the center and tied with a prominent ribbon:

I posted the photo earlier this year in another Olga thread with a watermark. If you look at the neck you can see where someone removed the watermark.

You can find the photo in J. Ferrand's 'Un album de famille' and there's also a photo of GD Tatiana and GD Maria from the same sitting.

Thanks Ashanti for the info, unfortunately I don't know how to get a hold of that wonderful sounding book.

Sarushka, you're right that the pic wasn't taken in 1899. What about the 1900 photosession? I don't know, she seems too young for the 1901 session. She doesn't look like a 5-6 year old in that pic.

  An early rendition of her looking quite determined while being photographed! lol! In the photo of the three girls, you can see how large Olga's hands were...later on she seems to hide them a good deal from the lens ,...curl them up etc....her thumbs were very long...that had to help in her piano playing. While they were large and long , they were well  shaped,  as were all of OTMAA  hands. I guess I notice hands , but their hands were beautiful.

Perhaps my all time fav photo of my favorite GD

  And what about Mashka? Where's she?  ???
I have never seen her in this series...perhaps she stayed back with Alix on the train that day  ? Otherwise you know she would be all over the kids! The photos were in Tatiana's album according to Prince George of Greece's book and TN ( the list maker)  made note of the children's names

Bolyus, Stephania and Lenka

So Stephania is in Olga's lap in the earlier photo and Bolyus is next to Anastasia....and Lenka is the one AN is holding after she hauled him up... 

Oh also OTA is wearing those red polka dotted blouses under their sweaters

I've never seen it that large either. It was the miniature from the Lilies of the Valley Faberge Egg that was given to the Empress. I wonder if the miniature's were based on actual sittings or just an artist's rendition. If it was based on actual sitting, there are formal photo session's from 1897 that is still in hiding at GARF.

They are really dressed up and glamorous in those stunning furs! Thank you voyageroffreedom ! That's new to me. The hats seem funny to us, but I bet they were happy  to no longer be wearing  the huge flying saucers hats  they wore when younger! lol! I have a similar photo . They are dressed more modestly in this one ...but  it's interesting in both Olga is doing the writing as TN looks on. It could be because it's for Olga's  committee ...or simply a matter that as the oldest she's the point  person.  Who ever the leader was within the family...birth order was usually strictly adhered to in official functions...and actually I think family leadership was something the sisters shared...like so much else .

It makes sense Ducky is with the Dowager Empress and the Big Pair since they were visiting with British nurses.
Ducky ( Grand Duchess Cyril)  had established an Anglo-Russian hospital along with the British ambassador's wife.

Olga still looks like she did in the 1895 pictures, and yet Tatiana is already born! Artist's mistake! Who did drew it, and was it after their death or a contemporary portrait?

GrandDuchessAndrea , imo  the artist used different photos from the 1896 session to compile this family group... that image of Alix I have seen in a photo of her holding Olga...in fact since Tatiana's face is not pictured, I wonder if this was done before any official portrait of her was available and right after her birth . Love the heavenly hosts! Thanks voyageroffreedom !

Thanks Sarushka. Your copies are way better than mine and the one with Grand Duchess Olga was new for me. :) However, I am looking for the pic that was based on for the portrait of the Grand DuchessTatiana in the Faberge lily egg. Just a picture of the Grand Duchess Tatiana by herself. I've never seen one and I'm hoping it is  in GARF. In the Faberge Lily egg, she seems old enough to sit by herself or someone was holding her in a seated position.

Interesting. It's Tatiana's hair length and stlye that would call that year into question.

BlessOTMA, specially for you:).

On this picture we can see Imperial family visiting one of the Junker schools (middle rank military institutions, before Corps or Cavalry school level). It seems to me that family simply visited their summer graduation and was photographed with students. However it could be just a simple visit, because Junkers here are in a none-ceremonial summer uniform (as I can see). I can't name exact place and school, because of the low photo quality.

Just fast thoughts...

Probably Livadia (see windows) sunday 27 april 1914.
Diary of Nicolas II: "В 6 вышли на площадку к выпускному классу Одесского военного училища в количестве 206 юнкеров. Снялись с ними группами" An extremly row translation (please, someone do better!) "At 6 o'clock, we went to the square to meet the graduate class of the Military school of Odessa. A quantity of 206 junkers. Took group pictures with them."
Thanks Nicolafor suggesting they were junkers.

lol!True.  Well one difference I see is in the 2nd one  Olga is looking down at whatever she is holding in the first one. What did she speak to her German relations? English as well?  It's remarkable the difference in her hair style the next year...much more closer to her head.
I guess they decided that a style which made her head  appeared wider was not the way to go..lol!...regardless, she's gorgeous of course.

I just love these kind of croppings, since we can appreciate people's expressions better than in a general picture in which their faces appears too little. I think that sometimes , when well done, croppings looks almost as new pics. I wish I could see more NAOTMAA cropping pictures.

Yes I like cropping too... and for the same reason..one can see more And it's so often a surprise. I had no idea I could see Olga's eyes so clearly once the 1911 photo was cropped and enlarged....I crop because I can't get the same large size if I try to fit the whole photo on the scanner. I'll work on the others from that 1911 photo and post them over the next few days.

Thank you VOF!  ..the tricky part of the green house photos is  they were never that  great...in that the family's faces were always  fuzzy. I believe whoever took the photo ( and I think it was Gillard) was way across the court yard...because I have seen prints like this one
(http://i792.photobucket.com/albums/yy202/blessOTMA/Somewhere/th_roofab.jpg) (http://i792.photobucket.com/albums/yy202/blessOTMA/Somewhere/roofab.jpg)
with yet another set of fencing close to the lens. It is fascinating to compare the two green house sitting photos. The attention of the family seems more focused in this one where Marie is sitting down.  Anastasia is craning her neck ( it seems) to get a better look at something. She has moved the most as well...  from the side of her father, all the way down the line . I fancy I see Tatiana's left hand is wide open...like one instinctively does when , again, something is going on.. Her hands are folded in the photo you posted . They are fasinating photos of course

They are dressed differently and for colder weather etc. =)

It's to hard to crop a picture when you must make it much bigger. The image becomes blurry and grainy. No way to do it. I also tried to and failed...:D

well how I do it is to take a print from a book for example and then scan it larger, add a heap of pixels to it etc....if one tried to make it bigger just by cropping a existing digital...then indeed, it just gets grainy . =/

The shape of their face, their noses, and foreheads are definitely similar. Though, her eyes are more like Alexandra's in my opinion. Anastasia and Olga shared the same eye shape, with sloping eyebrows.

These last ones are just great..They seemed to be very different pics! I think that the better crops are the ones in which the Grand Duchess were surrounded by other persons, so their faces could be lost among other faces. The cropping from individual formal shots are not so impressive.

I must disagree with you. I think they're equally great. The quality of crops from regular pictures is usually not fantastic, and that's the reason why we started asking for the zoomed crops anyway. The quality is so great that you can see little details that you hadn't noticed before.

Thank you, VOF & Larri!!

Does anyone have a larger and better version of the photo of Alix and baby Olga on this page? It's from the album of GD Helena which sold in an auction a few years ago.

It's an amazing photo. See how sun tanned the girls and Gillard are compared to there others.( General T., Countess H...Trina ) Every one one of the images from this time are so precious.

I think that maybe Anastasia was the photographer, since she is not in the pic. Alexis was still sick a bed at the time, so he was not present in the room and it's almost sure he didn't took the photo, either.
And yes, I'be always noticed how tanned Gilliard and the girls are. There's not the only one in which they look very tanned.

Talking about tan, I also notice in some of the girls pictures prior to captivity their skin was rather tanned like for example OTMA formal picture in 1916, their skin look darker than the usual probably they used to sunbath or being exposed to sun light too much.

Apparently the girls tanned themselves on the train trip to the Crimea in 1916...laying out in the sun "like lizards" and at some point Alix wrote to  Nicholas about this sun bathing habit asking "where, did they pick up that ? " Perhaps from nursing friends? A major source of new ideas lol! ...but they always enjoyed the sun since babyhood.

Post by: voyageroffreedom on February 16, 2011, 05:02:07 AM
Thank you Annie for the information =) Yes OTMA during the visit to Romania 1914 sunburned their faces, Iím assuming purposely, perhaps to appear less attractive to the Romanian royal family; as there were speculation about a possible match between Olga and crown prince Carol.

Yes clock, that when they did it on purpose , on the way to Romania while on the Startart, to ruin their looks ..., exactly VOF....and it's pretty funny really. OTMA on strike.  Tatiana particularly looked tanned  in the group photos . What I wonder is when/ how  did  sun tanning  done in 1914 to ruin their looks, become in 1916 something to enhance them...or at least something to enjoy?  It was about this time being tanned wasn't seen as being low class anymore ...but became a sigh of"  health"  etc.  Still , of course someone of Alix's generation would wonder about it...it would seem an odd idea to her.

Post by: clockworkgirl21 on February 17, 2011, 02:17:12 AM
I did remember reading that Olga got sunburned on purpose to be unattractive to Carol, and TMA did the same out of support, but chose not to add that because I couldn't remember if that was a fact written down somewhere or something we speculated.

Thanks for the link! Love  the one of the big pair with the picnic basket...they look so determined! lol! The young man they keep calling an "unidentified boy " has to be either "Dickie " or "Georgie"  Battenberg , Victoria's sons . I'm guessing "Georgie"

I found this for " Princess Louise"

<i>Louise Mountbatten, 1889Ė1965, born Princess Louise of Battenberg, second wife of King Gustav VI Adolf of Sweden and Princess of Sweden</i> . Seems likely   .....
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: voyageroffreedom on February 21, 2011, 05:36:49 AM
It could be Louise Mountbatten in the picture. I noticed in State archive, they sometimes mislabel photos like the one of the BP with a picnic basket, they have identified them as Maria and Anastasia, and in many cases they were unable to identify people in some photos, like this photo http://statearchive.ru/assets/galleries/435/ron-050.jpg they were unable to tell which GD it is, imo itís Olga.

lol! I say: Marie...because of her jaw and lips... however the fine housemanship could indicate Olga....But the big Pair with the basket! It's a surprise they could not see that. Can you imagine Anastasia carrying one side at this time? She couldn't llit it for long imo!

I posted this photo of the big pair, ducky and minnie back in Dec. and  AP member, matushka, was kind enough to add the  info below about the event pictured  at that time from Tatiana's diary.  Ducky , like Alix ,was Queen Victoria's grandmother...makes sense she would be at an English hospital visit. Even more so since she started an English hospital herself in St. Petersburg with the UK ambassador's wife  ...

19 january 1916. From Tatiana's diary: "At 2.15, we 2 with Iza went to Petrograd to Anichkov. We went with Grand-mother to aunt Ella's house for the benediction of the lazaret. There was a Te Deum. We looked at all the rooms, then were pictured. We drank tea. The whole personal is from England, the came from England especially for that."  (Source: Sisters of mercy)

lovely, Holly thanks!

A friend and I were discussing the cardigan sweaters the girls are wearing in the photo of May 1916  and indeed alot afterwards. Seems to me while they look normal to us, these  were unusual at the time. I believe Chanel was just creating this look then! I also remember people complained about the girl's  casual dress, which as I say , looks fine to us 90 plus years later of course. My question is how did the girls acquire this look during war time in Russia? ...an interesting question . 
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: Holly on March 24, 2011, 11:05:40 PM
You're very welcome!

They were indeed unusual at the time. I have no idea what exactly brought about the sudden change in dress. I would suppose that these outfits were for casual, every day outings.
I remember reading that even the peasants the girls met during stops, even peasants that had children the girls played with, were shocked at how they dressed. If I remember correctly, they stated that not even peasants would wear such clothing.

Of course, they always dressed formally for the fitting occasions, but they wore these outfits on the Standart, at Stavka, and around Tsarskoe Selo.
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: blessOTMA on March 25, 2011, 12:40:39 AM
Exactly, Holly....I'm wondering how they acquired such  cutting edge fashion! As I say  Coco Chanel was just creating this look in France then. It seems amazing OTMA  could avail themselves of it this early . I'm sure they liked it as it was far more comfortable etc. But it would be fun to know how they hooked up with it.
Quote
If I remember correctly, they stated that not even peasants would wear such clothing.
Indeed ,it reminds me of the response French Impressionism had at first ...while of course we today  think it's great! And so here, the girls look more modern to us today  than they would if they were dressed more in keeping with general accepted ideas for royals and even young ladies in their time.

 
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: blessOTMA on March 25, 2011, 01:11:57 AM
Actually the girls were wearing them well before 1916...I believe this is 1914...and let me say the quality of the clothing is gorgeous and leaps out even in b/w photos ...but it's the birth of modern "sports wear" ...casual clothing

Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: Holly on March 25, 2011, 09:38:03 AM
I agree with you, very obviously (and of course) they were of the best quality.

It's always noticeable in photographs that the girls wore different colors. Maria tends to wear the lighter version more often than the others. Anastasia seems to always wear the same color, which I would presume is a red color. I'm guessing that from the familiar gray tone that red gives off in B&W photographs and the fact that she always colored herself wearing red in hand-tinted photographs. That or it was her favorite color and she wished to be in red/pink all the time.
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: blessOTMA on March 25, 2011, 10:24:57 PM
I would agree with you about the red in her albums...it's a constant. I think most of the time it was red. Red can read darker than one thinks. One would not  think  Olga's Hussar uniform skirt was red...it looks black!. A deep red tends to look black , a bright red lighter reads : light  grey.
In this photo series  , I would say Marie : a buttery yellow, Olga : med  lilac ,AN : med red and TN : med blue ...just guesses of course.

What is interesting is perhaps in their own time these sweaters sets  looked like " at home " wear to many...rather than "street " clothes...and so it shocked them to see the girls out and about in them...of course they look like street clothes to us! We are use to tank tops and flip flops! lol! It's well the clothes were of the best quality  since they served them though the rest of their lives...they had other ones of course as well...in the May 1916 photo , while their hats are diffrent from each other  , it looks  like the sweaters were not diffrent colours , but similar

It's interesting to see Maria's experience as a royal in this...that is, not turning her back on the courtyard to move behind where she was standing....but to back up so she is always facing forward

Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV

Thanks! Actually it's this picture of Paul taken in later years that had me feeling it was he...here he looks like  the same man, only older. Paul is interesting . He can seem slight of build in some photo and in other photos he appears quite robust . His expression can alter his face as well.
So we know she noticed and at least  liked him as early as 1910. What I see in this photo is a young girl pursing...and  what I see in the 1913 photos is a young woman caught . It's the difference between having an interest and being in love

Friendly five cents...

Photo with the "aged" Voronov is taken in 1958. As I remember it was as an anniversary photoshoot dedicated to 50 y.o. graduation ("Messina's graduation", 1908) from the Naval Corps in Saint Petersburg. Organizers simply gathered together all the emigre officers (still alive) from all over the world.

Btw, Voronov was born in 1886, so he's about 70 there.

About the last photo that I have posted, I agree with irishgirl84 and Grand Duchess Valeria, I think it was taken around 1906; there are other few photos from that day.

From eBay... new to me and frankly dazzling ...the only other group photo of Olga and her Hussar's  from the 1913  review,  I believe Olga is looking to the side. Here she's looking right into the lens...stunning

Indeed. I'm always impressed at how seriously the children took their social  positions and "job" at such young ages . There is the famous Olga quote " In St Petersburg we work, but in Lavardia we live..." and work they did . They understood  importance of expression at times like this. Olga's pride, sense of heritage and love of country is palpable.

Yes that's exactly the one I mean...I haven't seen it that big before and it does look like an unfortunate placement of a spot rather than a general chemical reaction...thank you!
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: MademoiselleAndrea on June 04, 2011, 05:02:43 PM
WOW, I've never seen that photo so big. I've always thought that OTMA's dresses were really wierd everyday outfits, but now I see that they're actually dresses that may have been worn at a fancy court function! I never really thought much about dresses they wore to banquets and the like, because we see these really fancy and elegant gowns in the the many formal shots from the 5-some famous sessions, but I've never given the fancy dresses they wore that weren't in formals much thought. I hope I'm making sense here... ::)
In any case, thank you for that nice big photo, Sarushka!  :)

well that's interesting...perhaps a PM to VOF about the matter would have been a good opening salvo?  Pictures on the web and ebay have been posted here for some time and there hasn't been a problem  .... if there is a problem with this one, I'm sure VOF would be happy to stop. Actually I would think you wouldn't mind the extra traffic to your ebay auction of this photo such a posting would generate...however it's your call....you only have to ask ...and meanwhile I'm waiting for the photos I won from you on eBay ... whose very existence  I learned about from similar AP posts.

Amazing documentary - about 98% of the pictures used I've never seen before!!

Wish that I understood one word of Russian, but it seems to be told from the viewpoint of OTMAA, given the pictures and the voices.

Mahalo (thank you) very much for the link - I just wish I knew how to do screen grabs - so many great unseen (by me at least) pictures!

Even if you don't understand russian, watch it, at least for the pictures. But the music (it would be better to write "sound") is really annoying, it gave me a headache cause in the same time, I tried to understand in russian which is not my native language.
Yes koalagirl, in fact, it is told about the letters from Alexandra and the grandes duchesses (and maybe the tsar I don't remember).

Thanks for posting this link! It's awesome. The music can get annoying but I love how it's a reading of letters for the most part. I like that they read Tatiana's letter with the story of the David statue and Anastasia's 'artichoke' song.

Not sure if it was a song or just a poem.
"Artichokes, artichokes/and 'elmond' trees and 'elmond trees'/never grow on the nose/never grow on the nose/I wish they did/I wish they did/thrice and more."

And she often alluded to artichokes at the ends of her letters. Among many other random things..

I love the way Anastasia grins with Olga, and, well, i'll confess, i've had trouble to imagine they were close (even if i knew they were) but now, seeing it with my own eyes, it is simply OBVIOUS.

Sunny, in this group of photos and footage, I'd say they were quite close. I think it's safe to say the sisters all were close  however they were paired at the moment....In this group of photos...O and A's  closeness is quite marked. Also  I have never seen Anastasia so flirtatious as she is in those tennis photos...I'd say she had a flair for it! When a group of new to me photos happens, it both shakes up and confirms my view of them....both sensations are mildly shocking ....  Also imo "new"  photos, informs and enhances the well known ones as well . I'm thrilled to see the 1916 breach photos this well too!

She was definitely the least shy among the girls. I think she enjoyed joking with them and they were entertained by her. Since she was so young, I'm not sure how romantic or flirtatious is what in her eyes. Nothing at all has really been said on that subject with Anastasia.

I think Olga and Anastasia had a special bond. I think they had the most in common personality-wise. I've always noticed in home videos of them that Olga and Anastasia are often talking to each other. You can see it also in footage from 1914.

This was my favorite part in that bit of footage. Anastasia looks to the side and smiles very quickly at someone:

Exactly why her body language in those tennis  photos stand out to me...it's unusually grown up...and she seems a bit coy...Anastasia.??  I think  O and A had a special bond , but then I think they all had special bonds...I was just thinking of starting a thread: Olga speaking /Marie listening....there so many photos where Marie is listening to something Olga is saying..including the of the last one of them together in Tobolsk ...

of course Olga's and TN bond is legendary...the four of them  really were a unit and special  bonds within the unit did not lesson other bonds...quite remarkable.....

I believe she is in the lounge...but an ottoman/table  of sorts is in front of her and is cutting off the view of the royal appendages.

I think it's just a throw draped over the end of the lounge. Alexandra had a similar one on her lounge in the Mauve room, which she made herself. (It was later used as an altar cover in Tobolsk.)


She might have her legs folded up under her.

I wonder if Olga's actually sitting on a chair behind the lounge?
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: blessOTMA on July 27, 2011, 08:12:00 AM
By diffrent material, I meant the back of the lounge and the ottoman....which can look like one piece of furniture( a lounge)  at first glace .So there's a lounge, and upholstered ottoman and quite possibly a chair.... her legs aren't visible. So she's either lying on her hip on the lounge and  has them over the side and the ottoman is hiding them...or she's in a chair behind...It wouldn't surprise me if we are catching her in the act hiding her feet when she sees as camera. She seems to have just moved...When posing, Olga was always hiding her feet, and often her hands... I believe she thought them large. They tended to bunch up furniture  in these robe photos . Marie and her father are sitting in the middle of a pile of lounges and chairs  in the spring 1917 photo of Marie recovering...

This is a fairly well-known photo. It's of Olga and the wives of her regiment(3rd Elisavetsgradski Hussars)'s officers. I wouldn't know any names . These were presumably wives of senior officers. A Russian regiment was more than a military unit. It had a more or less formal social structure and organization. It had meetings, reunions, formal balls, parades, commemorations,a published history, etc. These were arranged by both the regiment's officers as well as  by  prominent( and responsible )senior wives.

I don't know the date of this photo but others probably do. I think it may be the same as Olga's well-known and photographed regimental review (19??)  And no, it doesn't seem like the ladies and Olga were real close., though Olga  really did enjoy being the regiment's honorary colonel.

Is it just me or does this look more like Ella than Alix? Further, did either of them have reason to be wearing dark (mourning?) clothing in 1896 or 1897?
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV

Khodynka meadow is my best guess. Alix was said to have been terribly shaken by the whole thing, and mourned for the people.

The mourning clothes would probably be for Prince Henry of Battenberg, her young uncle (husband of Beatrice), who died of typhoid (IIRC) on the Ashanti Expedition in January 1896. Alexandra was upset by Khodynka, and declared that she could not stop thinking of the victims, but there were no displays of mourning: she appeared at the Meadow in white, with diamonds, and the day went ahead as if nothing had happened (including, infamously, of course, the Montebello Ball). Nicholas declined several suggestions which would have amounted to public acts of sorrow or mourning.

I think it's Alix on the picture, for the record (wider mouth); had it been Ella, there is even less possibility that she would have worn black for Khodynka, as her main concern was to ensure that Serge didn't take the blame.

Nena, I don't think  the man on the left is OTMAA's Uncle Ernest. Reasonably close resemblance but it just doesn't seem to be him.

For any of you out there ,what do you think is the date of the bicycles photo? I lean towards 1907, but it could be the year before or after.

Defiantly Uncle Ernie's boys....1911 I believe. Interesting to see the front of Lavardia. Olga loved little children too and these boys being little Ella's brothers,  would hold a spical place imo

тяв-тяв,

I've only seen these 3 from this sitting.  What's always struck me about Olga was not just her poise in all of her formal photographs but the air of "regalness" about her.

OTMA 1906 formals:

Wow thank you for posting these Ortipo!

I've seen all three of these obviously famous and incredible photos, but not sure if I've ever looked at them in a row like this...bing, bang, boom!

You are so very right about Olga. Tatiana became more regal as she grew older, Marie had that effortless sweetness down pat and Anastasia was...well...unique! But Olga always looks like a perfect princess to me as a younger girl and the Queen as a young woman.

It always strikes me in that series how similar the girls look. I think it's how round their eyes are but they look so much like the beautiful sisters they are where as in other photos I sometimes struggle seeing resemblances.

We have so many photos of them, that we get to see thier many"  looks". We all have diffrent "looks" perhaps about 4 , where our face can look quite diffrent than at other times. One wouldn't know this unless there are a good number photos of a person.

Maria is a good example if exploring NAOTMAA photos.  Her face is always different from baby pics to later pics.

Indeed...and speaking of Marie, it has struck me how much Marie and Alexi looked alike. In fact I think we can get a glimpse at how an older Alexi would have  looked by looking at the ( too few!)  later photos of Marie. Their broad smiles were very alike as well

I found this while looking about the web. I certainly remember the photo of Olga looking down while playing checkers, but not this looking up pose.   It's said Olga was under mental/emotional strain at this time. Did she struggle , it seems  yes.   But I always felt hers was a normal and natural response to an extremely difficult position. Not just as a nurse in a military hospital, even a royal one, but to the ever increasing pressures on her country and her family... Marie wrote to her father that  Olga broke glass windows on a AP  park bridge... and that is often pointed to as a symptom of her  mental strain ...but what is often omitted from Marie's letter is the fact Marie and Anastasia broke windows as well. Seems like a good release to me.
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: edubs31 on August 16, 2012, 02:44:59 PM
Really? I didn't know the infamous "glass breaking" incident included three sisters. Do we think all three of them were flipping out, or is it more likely that Olga did her damage first in a fit of rage...then Anastasia and Marie followed suit more as a way to bond and show support for their emotionally distressed big sister...?

I can picture Anastasia doing such a thing rather easily, almost as a joke. Marie attempts to calm Olga down and then the Imp says something to the degree of, "that's right Olga, let it all out...I'm going to it too...[smash]" lol.

Many don't , that wouldn't fit with the Olga went nuts scenario  so ithe fact they all did it is  usually deleted.

I think they enjoyed such things. They were rough housers. If Olga started it, the small pair would have thier fun too.But it's interesting Marie begins the story to her father by saying, "Did you know??" as if it might have been reported to him already...quite possibly! Another story was Olga broke a table in a rage and laughed...nutty right? Then it turn out a small  table collapsed when she sat on it and she laughed about it . Quite diffrent

Nice finding blessOTMA! Any idea about the time when was this photosession taken?
Could the woman near the piano be V.I. Chebotareva?
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: blessOTMA on August 17, 2012, 01:13:41 AM
Not sure , perhaps late 1914 early 1915 ?

To me  that woman  looks like a lady in waiting who's dressed as a nurse... seems to be basically watching Olga and reading a paper lol
It's actually a good idea to have such a person robed in a nurse's outfit because of germs...both the ones her street clothes  could bring or take out afterwards.

But the woman is  too old to be  Chebotareva. Here is the LOVELY Valentina Ivanovna Chebotareva with her son and daughter ...plus french bull dog! in a photo that was posted by Sarushka.  Chebotareva was such a good friend to the big pair, particularly Tatiana. " The Governess "  was herself taken under a wing  and thankful! 


Chebotareva & her children:

That last one, xwhiterussia, was it from the Tobolsk days, in front of the Governor's mansion, or at Stavka in Mogilev? I thought at first it was from exile inTobolsk, but now I'm not sure. I think the main reason Olga would be pulling Alexei (with some effort it seems)would be if he was sick or injured and unable to get around by himself. He looks too big and old to be in the having -to-be- pulled-by his big-sister stage here. That suggests Tobolsk, winter 1917/18. What does one think?
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: xwhiterussia on December 08, 2012, 12:56:21 PM
Yes, I think this might have been the Tobolsk years at the Governor's Mansion, I agree with the thought that he may have been injured or even sick and couldn't walk.  I think the year was 1917,but correct me if I happen to be wrong.

Hello all,
few months ago I found very interesting web page about Romanovs, their life and destiny: http://otma.blog.cz/0911/stoleti-poslednich-romanovcu (http://otma.blog.cz/0911/stoleti-poslednich-romanovcu).
It is in Czech language hence it is not very useful for many people but what is amazing about this web page is gallery of colored photographs of the whole family. These photographs were colored by creator of this web page.
Here are some examples, you can find more on this web page.
(http://i605.photobucket.com/albums/tt131/GrandDuchessAlly/Romanovs/1593.jpg)(http://i605.photobucket.com/albums/tt131/GrandDuchessAlly/Romanovs/1271.jpg)

For those who do not speak Czech here are links directly to photographs of each family member:

You could be right about the girls, Sarushka, but Marie in general looks almost slim, certainly not 'le bon gros tou-tou", the sturdy, full-bodied girl of conventional image, though I know some of that might have come later with puberty.

The picture was actually taken on the north German coast on the way to England, when the imperial family stayed briefly with Princess Irene at Hemmelmark. The man on the right, half cut in half, is the Grand Duke of Hesse, and the girls on the groyne are - according to Mountbatten's identification in a pictorial biography he collaborated on for the 80th birthday he never reached - Olga, Tatiana and Anastasia, left to right. Marie stands below. This seems right to me, based on the height and build of each.

This is neat. This means that the powers -that-be(her parents, the Emperor and Empress) thought Olga was sufficiently sweet and appealing in this photo to make it publicly available in a postcard. An easy calll, and it means an untold number of people in Russia and abroad got to see the first Imperial daughter....including us in the 21st century.  I'm really glad.

One has to click on the thumbnail 3 times to see the full size. Hit open new window on the thumbnail,  then another  open new window in
the photo  and then on the right hand lower corner is a button that says"  see original" ...when you click that , you 'll see the photo in its full size and what looks like an embroidery  of a flag from a ship is on Olga's left side ( our right )

 I would say that blurry one was taken at the same time ...of course I meant Olga was utterly adorable lol

If I hadn't zoomed the photo, I would not have known whether the Tsar was making a cross or fitting his cap. In this case, he was surely making his cap. Btw, the photo is great and it was taken in aprox. 1911 or 1912, IMHO.

This really proves Sophie Buxhoeveden's description:

That quote sounds just about right! Maria and Olga were both beautiful, but Olga in a more quiet, graceful way while Maria was just obviously gorgeous.
Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: blessOTMA on October 28, 2013, 08:54:13 PM
They do look similar..the biggest help to tell them apart is Marie was heaver  and Olga thinner...but that helps more as they get older!

nena  I agreed about Tsar putting on  his  cap... his fingers would not be on the cap if crossing himself
so they are leaving someplace here

This is true, but for me I seem to have the hardest when they were a bit younger, but that was usually only when a picture was far away or in bad quality. T and A had their own distinct looks though, so they are always much easier.

In the aspect of looks, the Big Pair and Little Pair doesn't apply. It is OM and TA.

I agree with you there of course. I think it's like with OM, in a picture like that if I wasn't so used to seeing them I might have thought Maria was Olga (I think it's the eyes) but still in my opinion Tatiana had such a different look than the rest of the family and Anastasia was Alix's daughter, but OM looked very much like the Romanov side.

But yes, I still agree with you about OM and TA looking alike ( :

It is certainly August 1912, in Moscow for the Borodino's and Moscow's celebrations. You can see the grand-duchesse Elisabeth. Thanks for this picture, new for me.]

I agree with what you said about Tatiana's looks. Most people who saw them (the guards on their imprisonment in Ekaterinburg, notably Yurovsky) said Maria looked most different from the siblings. They make sense because Maria didn't resemble either Nicholas or Alix. However, (as you said) she obviously took after Romanov side, and those people didn't consider that ^^ On the other hand,  one could say Tatiana looked much like Alix during her younger years at first - but if one compares her face with NAOMAA in many pictures, he/she would agree with our opinion that Tatiana is the one who really looks different from her family. (but we are open to those who won't agree with this opinion ~^^)
LOL about Anastasia being Alix's daughter. If we change Anastasia's face shape into Alix's, the resemblance would be more observable : ))

Quote
I might have thought Maria was Olga (I think it's the eyes)
Yes, and may I add - the face shape in some pictures because they both have rather 'wide' (I don't know what word could be more appropriate) faces.

I agree with you Lady Macduff! I've seen it many times before.
Now I conclude: even though at first look one would say they that they all don't clearly look alike, someday when you get so used to seeing them and look at their photos from N&A's childhood to the few, last photos of them for a long time (and repetitively), you'll realize they resemble each other in a 'discreet' way or in many ways : )

Title: Re: Olga Photographs IV
Post by: edubs31 on November 01, 2013, 07:03:48 AM
I've always thought of them as the perfect sisters in terms of their personalities. Not just because they were extremely close to one another but because their rather unique personalities created a perfect balance.

I think the latter also applies to their physical appearance. But here I see them looking more like a group of cousins rather than siblings. Family resemblances certainly, but more unique looking than most groups of siblings I've seen.

The first photo is pretty well-known and it was one of my early favourites of Olga. The second is from this year and I've noticed that it seems Olga is wearing the same dress as in the familiar photo, but with what looks like a different high-necked undershirt. I was also reminded of the story that the girls personalised their dresses with small additions: here Tatiana and Anastasia are wearing what look like extra brooches to me.

The same outer dress was used in both pictures definitely! So good that you've pointed it out - I like seeing photos that show they wore one dress in different days (although it's a normal thing for people, I find it amusing to see on royals ^^)

I remember I read that when people made of inventory of the IF's things in Tsarskoe Selo a lot of cloths were found in bad condition. Dresses and other clothes have been used many times.

I think many pictures are only made to look like random snaps - including the one of OT reading. I think a lot of thought and arrangement went into taking these photos, and there was effort to make them as natural as possible. I remember reading that even the "casual" pictures of little Alexei sweeping leaves in the park were actually posed.

Post by: KarinK on April 23, 2014, 10:45:51 AM
Wonderful! The first one might have been posed, Tatiana is sitting in a way that doesn't look very comfortable for reading, but thinking of the girls planning good shots just like we do today is one of the things that make the family's photos so interesting to me.

This  is the better known photo from that setting. I remember  because of the toy dog down on the floor. From comparison with the other one with the toy dog standing upright near little Tatiana, it's apparent that she's the culprit in the dog's demise. I've always loved this photo; it shows Tatiana so unbelievably innocent, and big sister Olga  at the advanced age of about two and a half years already showing self-awareness and an expectation of being the deserved center of attention.

Dare I say it? Both adorable in their different ways.

I've never seen an explanation, but for some reason Maria was allowed to put her hair up in 1914 when she was fifteen. She has her hair loose in some 1914 Standart photos, but in June/July she's wearing it up.

Okay, it must be 1914, then.  I was just wondering because I know she was wearing her hair loose in the photographs from the visit to Romania.  Interesting, anyway.

1914, I'd say. By spring of 1914 Maria Nicholaievna was allowed to put her hair up. Maybe she looked mature by that time?

That's the Standart they're on, no? The last time they were on the Standart was 1914 (if memory serves me) so it would have to be 1914.

I too have often (very often) wondered why she got to put her hair up earlier than her sisters. She wasn't even pulling it back into a pony tail like Olga and Tatiana had done the year before their 16th birthdays. Very interesting.

This is possibly far-fetched, but I've wondered if it had anything to do with Tatiana having her hair cropped short before she turned 16. Maybe Maria was allowed to experiment informally with putting her hair up...just in case.

Historically it's a minor detail, but I hope that a letter between family members gets published one day that answers this little mystery. In Romania Maria has her hair loose, then on the Standart it's up when they're having their private holiday, the same in the photos with George Mountbatten (so presumably during events related to the British/French visits? I don't have any photos of the president's visit where Maria would be visible), and it's up when the girls make a public appearance with their parents after war is declared.

I've always figured Maria successfully sweet-talked her mother enough that Alexandra allowed her to put her hair up in private. After all, she was known as the sweet one.

There goes my idea! :D I originally suspected that perhaps maybe it was simply something she was allowed to do in private, but with your mentioning of the war declaration and other important visits, it seems not. I too hope some day, some how, we will put this mystery to rest.

This is possibly far-fetched, but I've wondered if it had anything to do with Tatiana having her hair cropped short before she turned 16. Maybe Maria was allowed to experiment informally with putting her hair up...just in case.

Hm, good thought. Could be, but I am not 100% sure. What do you think? Only adult photos of Olga laying in bed I have seen was that one during early 1917, but she must have been ill sometime during the war, right?

The right question is - was she ill or just laying in the bed? Did the IF have habit to take photos when being in bed, whether they were ill or not? (Remember photos of ill Tatiana from 1913, Alexei's numerous photos in bed while having crisis...). On the other side, we have got Empress' photos in bed while resting, for example.

What room is Olga in in her sickbed picture? I know at one point she was moved to a real bed in the sickroom, but we can see here that she's still in her cot. So the bedroom she shared with Tatiana, then?

Well, I think it is.

I checked on VK, and according to them, the photo was taken in 1916, not 1917. So if they are right, it wasn't when Olga was ill with the measles.

The print on the screen behind her cot matches other photos of the bedroom she shared with Tatiana at the AP.

Wow, Maria Sisi, where did you find that photo of Olga, Maria , and George Mountbatten? A true rare photo! And though this an Olga photo thread, I'm most struck by the Maria/Mountbatten linking. In view of George's brother Louis ("Dickie")'s great infatuation for Marie, you have to wonder about him .Could he have been there taking this photo? At a minimum he would love to have been in his brother's place beside her. Louis , I think, didn't see her after an age  when we she was much younger than she appears here, which looks to be at least sixteen, maybe 17 years old (1915/1916). George appears to be some sort of junior naval cadet or very young officer. In any case ,Maria is here even more beautiful and blossoming than when Dickie became "crackers for her" as I think he once put it.

In this regard, is there a date and place for this photo? It's kind of important, because it's likely during early wartime unless Marie is younger than 15 (unlikely)) and couldn't have therefore been in Germany, a possibility for pre-July,1914.

Btw, in seeing the name Mountbatten, and even the male's face, I at first thought it was young Louis.

But again, just wonderful photo and discovery, Maria Sisi!

IMHO, the best photos' confirmations on regarding place/date would come from diary entries.
 
Nicholas II mentions 'Georgie' visiting them during July (precisely - on 10th, 13th,14th, 15th, 18th) of 1914 in his diary (at Peterhof), when those photos were most likely taken. ;-)

This photoshop has been floating around the internet for years and confusing people, but now somebody has invented a ridiculous story about it:

"Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna of Russia, the eldest daughter of Tsar Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra. She was going to be painted by Laszlo, this picture was in hands of Laszlo in London when she was murdered by the Bolsheviks with her entire family."

They did not bother to inform me. I learned to take these thing (because they happen all the time) in my stride, but it still makes me angry.

Well, thanks, Antonina and Sarushka. I was farther off than I thought in my about that word. I initially thought it referred to a locale for the photo, but now am inclined to believe it may be the name of the patient in question. You can see that there is a bit of similar writing just outside the border of this photo (and on one of the others) which may also be an identifier for persons in the photos.
As interesting, and maybe a harder question is, was that the writing of Olga, another of OTMA, or some hospital personnel, or added for identification by the collator of these photos much later? Hmmm?

I really dislike those photo shopped made up photos. Perhaps its the artist in me because they are rarely well done  They often look creepy even  scary. So often the sizes between fake and real are way off and do not match . However Ally, your work  is the exception to that . Yours are the only ones I see as art and are good enough to truly fool people. I always know your work in this regard . No one does it better....true  for much of Romanov photographic art

But this is clearly a different outfit and Olga looks a bit younger than 19 1/2. I'm guessing 1913...thoughts?

Most of these VK rares have been from 1914-1916 albums. The hat also reminds me of the general style of the hats the girls wore to be photographed at the hospital or public appearances during WWI. Personally I'd guess 1915-1916, but it could be anything from 1913-1916.

Yes. The fabric would also be dull and lusterless, like the dresses OTM wore for KR's funeral in 1915. Pearl jewelry would probably not be considered appropriate, either.

Yes, the rares I would love to see are 1917 spring photos of the family indoors. Most were taken in the garden, and though there are a couple of Maria with Nicholas and Tatiana/Anastasia, I feel that having more indoor photos could give me a better idea of what Maria and Anastasia looked like as the young women they had grown up to be, without the hats or heavy clothing they wear in most 1915-1917 photos.

Ally, what a wonderful picture of Olga bicycling down the terrace ramp!  I haven't seen this one before. 

Now I wonder, what is that mat doing at the foot of the ramp?!

I can see that the photos are slightly different, but they were taken very close in time (as shown by shadow patterns) and showing subjects who appear to be dressed identically and in the same pose on the bike.  Are you sure they are the different sisters?

Tatiana has her hair up and a fringe so it is the wig. This is the first photo I can remember of the girls wearing those dresses in 1913, the other ones were from 1912.

Post by: Sanochka on February 28, 2015, 10:29:10 AM
This dress certainly does appear in lots of photos.  All four girls wore one; it must have been a favorite dress for all of them.  BTW, I wonder what happened to their dresses when they wore out/were outgrown/went out of style.  I know many were preserved, but were any simply thrown out?

Highly likely. Olga's affectionate touch supports this . And though the view of him is not totally clear, he looks like her cousin Ludwig (who in his way looks like his father, Olga's uncle Ernie).

Post by: edubs31 on March 22, 2015, 03:43:57 PM
Is it safe to assume these pictures were taken around the same time? The one with Olga & Tatiana together looks like they're in mourning. But whose funeral would have taken place in the fall of 1913? None of their Russian relatives died around this time if memory serves.

Obviously the one with Olga on the bench with Anastasia (great photo too I might add!) had to at least have been another day. AN isn't dressed in black and Olga is wearing that white undershirt which helps differentiate it from the photo with Tatiana.

Wonderful picture in reply 814!!

About this old one with Tatiana and Olga perhaps mourning: no relatives died in autumn 1913, but when they were in Livadia died Dediulin, an aide-de-camp of the Tsar. It was the 26 october, and a requiem immediately took place. Then the 29 the family assisted at the funerals. It is only a guess of mine!

I agree the large pair are in  mourning and Olga mentions wearing  mourning in her 1913 diary...( I forget the date) I also think she's in  mourning in the newer photos taken in the AP window.,. ( perhaps trying it out?  They liked to take photos of  landmarks)  but the photo here of sewing looks like simply a dark coat . When we say no relatives passed at a certain time...well they had alot of them lol .

Between relatives and people close to their imperial circle it stands to reason that they could have been wearing black every other week. Which I certainly don't think they were, so naturally they had their pick their spots. Who to mourn and who not to, at least in terms of their selection of attire.

I agree.  There's a pensiveness about her in so many photos.  I think she felt things more than her sisters did:  her position, her brother's illness, her nursing work during the war and, finally her father's abdication and the family's captivity.  In this way she was very much like her mother.

This must be the girls' drawing room.  It corresponds to floorplans of the palace.

The cabinet to the left is the one beside which Olga sits in the previous photo, only the shelves are empty.

What a fantastic photo!  I've NEVER seen this one before.  It's so hauntingly candid, I can't stop looking at it.  I love the Empire chair - so prominent in the photo.  And the coats Olga & Tatiana are wearing; are they not those we see in the famous 1916 film clip of the four grand duchesses gathered around their father with a horde of officers at Stavka?

New to me as well...thanks for posting Ally!

And speaking of candid I find the empty chair an oddly symbolic metaphor as well. The confused Tsar, the resigned Empress and concerned looking daughters with no one in command of their dwindling empire.

No pictures (yet) and I haven't seen them on this board but did Olga, at one point, fall into a lake and had to be helped out? Because I'm looking through my folders and I have loads of photos of Olga being helped out of the water with one featuring Anastasia and I'm unsure if she fell into the water or purposely stepped into it and was just helped out of it. I do have one picture of Olga either shouting or laughing about it but I'm unsure if she fell in or not.

EDIT: I think Anastasia fell in too because she's also in another one climbing out.

I know the photos you're referring to. It's hard to say exactly what happened unless someone can link it with a diary entry or a letter!

I have pictures. :D But not diary entries or letters. I'll post the pictures in order, like a story.

https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/ec/ca/9d/ecca9d26d689bc3362abaf6fe85bfb84.jpg (https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/ec/ca/9d/ecca9d26d689bc3362abaf6fe85bfb84.jpg)

Olga being helped out of the water. No sight of Anastasia yet, so I assume she's either climbed out before hand (if she fell in) or comes to help like a good sister. Olga has decided to be pulled out rather than climb out herself, same officer is helping her. Another officer (holding a coat or towel for her?) is ready to assist her when she's close enough. Another officer watches and another goes to help save the Grand Duchess.

(https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/be/ba/20/beba20876a28b3b682d2de278cb43ec3.jpg)

Olga now has a hand to hold as she helped out of the water. The officer saving Olga needs the assistance of another officer to grab his (cane?) or help pull her out. Officer (familiar to anyone? He seems familiar) saving our Olga is laughing about it, but I would laugh about it too. Unfortunately, for Olga anyway, she happens to be the Grand Duchess that can't swim.

(https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/5a/24/f4/5a24f41c163ca0cf87adddd2a582bd18.jpg)

The brave Anastasia has come to save the day! You may not be able to see her because she's blended in so perfectly with the rocks, but it's definitely her. There's a picture of OTMA where Olga and Anastasia are wearing those clothes, and her hairs down so it is either Maria or Anastasia, but the clothes gave it away. The soldiers have now taken each others hands and have began to pull Olga out that way.

(https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/37/6e/d4/376ed434cf8d7170da165a97f861d2ae.jpg)

Here's Olga admitting defeat, yelling or laughing while Anastasia, who first went to help her sister, has decided that she's a lost cause and has climbed up the rocks without help to safety. Olga seems to be laughing or yelling about the whole situation like I said, or, yelling at Anastasia, maybe for just leaving her? Maybe she pushed her dear sister in who decided if she was going down she will take Anastasia with her? :D (I doubt that, because of the rocks, but it's funny to think about).

After analysing the pictures I have come to the conclusion THAT...

Olga's feet got stuck in the mud when she fell in that's why she has so many people helping her out. Also her legs do not move from their original positions in the water.

I have decided to call this photoset; Olga's Last Hope.

It is the middle or the end of May, 1913. The emperor's travel with a family down the river to Volga.
All laugh at a situation humour.

It is near Moghilev, the river Dniepr, in August 1916. The grand-duchess are playing with Mordvinov, an aide-de-camp, triying to make in "sink" in the river.

Incredible! Thank you so much for posting the 1906 photos of the girls. What a wonderful look behind the scenes of some of the most well-known images of them.

I've only seen one of those Olga photos before (5) but two others were also not crossed out. If they were deemed acceptable for public release, I wonder if there exist cards of images 1 and 6.

I hadn't seen the two photos posted by Sister Romanova on August 11, of Olga and Anna Vyrubova at Livadia.  The first is especially intriguing; I've seen only the well known photo of Alexis and Alexandra sitting in this chair.  I had no idea that it was one of a series.
