Title: Looking for help with Picture(s) and/or Captions
Post by: Angie_H on March 01, 2005, 05:04:00 PM
I think this a pic of Nicholas & Ella.
There is a caption at the bottom, but it's in Russian!
Can someone translate it?
Thanks!

Yep it said thats Nicolas and Ella Feodorovna!

But what are they doing exactly?
Title: Re: Looking for help with Picture(s) and/or Captions
Post by: Jane on March 01, 2005, 05:10:55 PM
It translates to "Tsesarevich Nikolai Aleksandrovich and Grand Duchess Elizaveta Fedorovna 1886"

Probably taken at a staged production put on by the IF for their own enjoyment.

It looks like one of the  pictures when they were in a play. I have seen  other pictures with them in that dress. Was it a Eugene Onegin  Play(think I spelled his name wrong,but you get who I'am talking about).

I have seen pictures of Nicholas and Ella as Onegin and Tatiana from Eugene Onegin, as well, but their costumes were different than those in the posted photo.

I'm not sure which play, assuming that we are correct in our guess, this photo would be from.  The costumes look a little odd to me, only because Nicholas' appears to be evocative of the mid-1600s, while Ella's seems to represent an era of at least 50 years later (if not more).

Its the Ella one that I've seen before, will have to look at some books and try to find it.But I know I've seen it before. I think she and Nicholas were standing in the picture.

Thanks Everyone!
I think Nicholas is 18 in that pic
Title: Re: Looking for help with Picture(s) and/or Captions
Post by: Dasha on March 01, 2005, 06:51:08 PM
Probably seventeen or eighteen, since in 1884 he was sixteen.  The picture is dated 1886, so I guess we'll just add two years.  Of course it depends on what month it was taken.  I hope that answers your question.

It was a ball on the 6th may 1888 (Nicholas's birthday). Guests have to dress as "mousquetaires" for the men and as lady of the 18th century (in white) for the women. But I can't remember where the ball took place... I will chek in my books...
Here are Nicholas and Elisabeth Mavrikievna

The Eugene Oneguine play (After Pushkin) took place in 1890. Ella played Tatiana Larina and Nicholas Eugene:

I have found another group photo wearing the same costumes in the Zoya Belyakov's book " The Romanovs, the way it was"
According to her it was " theatrical performance at the Sergievsly Palace 1888. Theatricals, tableau , charades and costume balls in the Serigievsky Palace were also a great success. A unique photograph from 1888, featuring 23 individuals , has survivied  to the present day. It shows costume ball or an amateur performance,very much in the fashion of many of the aristocratic salons of that era."

Don't worry if you don't get a response right away--while our messages pop up right off different people may or may not be logged on who would respond to them. I address specific points made to me but I might not be on the board until hours later or even the next day. If someone isn't actively paying attention to the updates in each thread it can take awhile. Doesn't mean people are ignoring the post.  :)

We also had a discussion awhile back about acknowledgments and thanks--some people will leave them during a followup  but not really a separate message because it can take up space. So if people don't come right out it doesn't mean that posts aren't appreciated. If everyone who read them said something this board would be even larger.  :)

Dear Lisa:

I just had to extend my sympathies over your "evil computer" -- I share the same fate!   :-/

I apparently obtained a virus last weekend and it completely wiped out everything on my computer -- I had to "restart" it without any my saved items from the time I purchased it - all of my many Romanov pictures (most from this site!) were wiped out.....so guess what I am doing?    ::)

Evil computers - and "evil hackers" that create these viruses -- create huge problems -- everyone please make sure you are protected from viruses -- even though I had a program installed it bypassed it!   >:(

Sorry to be off topic but I so sympathize with Lisa right now!  I have spent over 8 hours on the phone with various computer techs this week and over $400 just to get my computer running again!   :o

I know what you mean.   I had a laptop that contracted many viruses and it literally died.  It wouldn't turn on at all.  Then we somewhat revived it, but it won't let you get past a certain part.  Sometimes I think computers have minds of their own and enjoy watching us fume over their little glitches.  lol. ;D ::)
Title: Re: Looking for help with Picture(s) and/or Captions
Post by: grandduchessella on May 27, 2005, 07:00:58 PM
It is wretched. Our hard drive died and the computer shop couldn't even get it to boot up off the system disk. I was afraid I'd lost EVERYthing (and it's in the 10,000s of photos--it's so sad). My hubby did not have an easy time of it that weekend as I was crying and yelling and wailing. Not only were there all the photos I've saved from ebay, etc...but all my own albums that I'd spent months scanning and then cropping images from them, etc...I knew I'd never sit down and do it again. Then said hubby managed to hook up the new computer we had to buy to the 'a' drive of the old one and a bunch of other stuff to create a Frankenstein computer. He somehow--I still don't understand it--managed to copy the files to the new computer and save them. It took about 28 hrs all together. What a guy!  :D Needless to say he advised me to burn my images onto CDs which I'm doing--I think I'm going to hit about 100 by the time I'm done.  :-/ So for all those out there w/computer problems my deepest sympathies--I just wanted to die when it happened.

There's Tatiana, Olga (or Anastasia? I can't tell...), Maria, and Nicholas, as well as I think that's Anna Vyrubova, but who is the young man in the photograph with Nicky and the girls? It's def. not Alexei, this person looks too old.

Hey Dmitry2,
I'm sure Lanie hit the nail on the head with the identitys. She does mention Nicholas, he's at the right end of the bench, but the "young man" is on the left side of the bench. I don't think we have an name indentity for him yet.

the "young man" is Rodianov, an officer of the Standardt and Nicholas' usual tennis partner at Livadia.

These clips are great! I love the detail that you can see in some of them, especially when you slow down the clips and watch them frame by frame - the expression in Alexandra's face, catching them looking at the camera, seeing their movements and mannerisms, etc. These are the kinds of clips I had in mind to see when I posted the "Romanov home movies" thread a while back.

I got this great book from the library with some pics I never seen before. The only thing is that the book is in Russian! From doing searches on the web, I can decipher some names, but of course I can't be sure. I scanned the pics so maybe someone else might know.

I know this one is a drawing of Alexander II's family. What I think is unique is that not only does it show his 6 sons, but also his 2 daughters

The first one, no, I don't think it is Nicholas.

Second, it's Olga.

Third, it's not Maria. It looks like they are are visiting Alix who might be sick, and that's a maid or something. Maria might be taking the pic.


P.S. Are you asking questions or sharing pics? By the way there GREAT! I have'nt seen any of them before. ;D

#2 Victoria, Pss Royal, Empress Frederick of Germany
#6 Looks like King George and Queen Olga of Greece with their children... Pss Alexandra on the far right, Pss Maria on the far left.
#7 Alexander III with his wife, Ksenia sitting in front of him, and Mikhail sitting on the ground... looks like maybe Georgiy is standing in the white?
#8 Aleksandra Isofiovna (I thin kthat was her patronym)... with... I have no idea, a grandchild?  It says Queen Victoria with Alix but it obviously isn't.
#9 GD Mikhail and GDss Olga A
#10 GDss Maria Pavlovna the Elder
#13 "The Tsarist Children on the Imperial yacht Standart" (I think that's what it says!)
#14 GDss Maria N, GD Alexei with their nurse Maria Vishnyakova (looks like her to me)
#15 I've seen another photo from this... it's Alix with her daughters, 1912... dunno what it says though
#18 Nicholas II, MAria Feodorovna and GDss Olga N
#19 Taken 1913, Alexei is in the bed; it's in his bedroom

I've seen most of these, except the one of Maria N, Alexei N and their nurse c1907. :)

Hello Angie,

I'm going to try and answer some of your questions.  The second picture from the top is Queen Victoria, and the eighth one is identified as Queen Victoria with Princess Alix, the future wife of Nikolai II.  I'll try and decipher some more and post them as I go along.  I hope this helps you.

I actually have this picture! If the caption I have (in English) is correct the figure in the center is GD Paul who would later marry Princess Alexandra of Greece. The others are GI, Queen Olga, Crown Prince Constantine, Princes George & Nicholas, Princesses Alexandra & Marie.

This looks like AIII on one of his hunting trips. Probably most of the people in the back are members of the household or friends. In the front row I can see Xenia, NII (on the far right), Minnie and perhaps GD Alexander next to Xenia?

There is no GD Alexey and Queen Olga of Greece (as the caption read)in the pic. The caption says that it's the Imperial Family on holidays in the skerries. I guess that the other people are courtiers.

I am looking for a particular group photo, or any group photo, of the Romanovs. I can't find a good copy of it anywhere.
I think the one i want was taken in about 1913 or 1914. It shows Nicholas sitting down, with Alix behind him, and all the children seated or standing around them.

I hope Somebody can help.

Nope. Alexei's in the middle and Tatiana on the right end. You can tell by the distance by which the eyes are set apart. Tatiana's were set further apart than any of her siblings.

It seems obvious that all of the above photos were taken on the same occasion, just different poses.  The clothing is identical in all of the pictures.  I believe that the pictures were taken Romanov tricenntenery in 1913.

Ferngully,

If you have the book The Romanovs=Love,Power and Tragedy, its on page 202. I'm sorry I don't have a scanner yet. But it says Grand Duchesses Olga, Anastasia, Maria and Tatiana with the officers of the yacht on a picnic. The photograph was autographed by Grand Duchess Tatiana and it read: "The island of lillies-of-the-valley. The yacht 'Standard' on the roadstead. June-July 1913".

No...See the photo carefully. You'll notice in a glance that the left girl is Anastasia. Her face never changes. You can not mistake her by another person. These are Anastasia and Maria. No doubt.

I don't find strange that they mislabelled the photo. I've a book about Rasputin where a known photo of Olga and Maria is mislabelled as one of...Olga and Tatiana...ARRRGGGHHH.  >:(

;) (Pay no mind to my cheesy sense of humour)

If anyone can help me find this picture I'm looking for, I would love it... I've seen the picture in "Nicholas and Alexandra: The Family Albums". It was either from the early 1900s or the very late 1890s. It took up two full pages in the book; I'll describe it below:

The picture was taken at Ropsha Palace, and the palace is visible in the background. Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna is standing at the left side, holding the reins of a horse upon which Tsar Nicky sits. Behind him, in a carriage (that is attached to a different horse, not visible in the picture), Xenia and Sandro are seated. It looks like Xenia is either taking off her coat or putting it on. No one else is in the picture I don't think. But can anyone post it? Or if it's already posted somewhere, could someone leave the hyperlink? Thanks for your help.

WHo would take precedence over each other??  I mean all 3 are daughters of Tsar's???  Anyone know??

Olga is the one sitting slightly lower than everyone else with the white scarf.  Anastasia is the closest girl to her, on Nicky's right.  Marie is standing, and the other one is Tatiana, on Alexei's left.

I colored a different version here (http://i94.photobucket.com/albums/l81/Aliss_Kande/notmaacopy.jpg) and it's a little easier to see who is who.

Post by: Sarushka on April 23, 2007, 07:18:45 PM
The last surviving photos of Olga, Tatiana, Anastasia, and Aleksei are these, taken on the Rus in May of 1918. I think it's very unlikely that these photos could have been taken on the journey from Tsarskoye to Tobolsk in August -- the children are wearing heavier coats and hats than I'd expect to see in the summertime. I don't know who took them:
(http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/th_100_2302.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/100_2302.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/th_100_2301.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/100_2301.jpg)


As far as I know, the photo Gilliard claims is the last one of the family was was taken in Tobolsk in the winter of 1917. It may be true that photo on the roof was the last picture of NOTMAA *together* but as the Rus pictures prove, there are definitely later photos of them in smaller groupings.

As for Nicholas, Alexandra, and Maria's last photos - it's difficult to determine. Very few of the pictures from Tobolsk are dated by month, and the captions can be misleading. Some books will tell you that this photo, taken in Tobolsk in the early spring of 1918 is the last picture of "the empress and her daughters:"
(http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Arrest%20and%20Exile/th_aot1918.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Arrest%20and%20Exile/aot1918.jpg)
It could possibly be the last photo of Alexandra, but it's not the last picture of Olga or Tatiana. At best, it's the last photo of Alexandra *with* her daughters.

The imperial family did have their cameras briefly at the Ipatiev house, but their photo equipment was confiscated soon after their arrival, and the photos are presumed lost or destroyed. Any book that labels a photo of the IF as taken in Yekaterinburg is mistaken.

Title: Re: Looking for help with Picture(s) and/or Captions
Post by: jmjjmjjmj on August 01, 2007, 10:00:53 AM
I recently acquired in Paris a set of three original photographs of the Vladimirovichi in a folding leather display portfolio. The photographs can be dated to about 1885-6 because of the apparent age of their youngest child, G.D. Helena, who appears to be 3 or 4.

The photograph in the middle is of G.D. Vladimir and his wife. The one on the right is the Grand Duchess and her four children (the back was labeled in French with the names and titles and Vladimir spelled with a “W”).

The one on the left appears to have the three Vladimirovichi boys with two other male adults. The one in the white uniform looks to me like Tsar Alexander, though his beard is shorter than I have seen it otherwise. The other one I first guessed to be G.D. Pavel. However, the Hussar uniform he is wearing is not decorated with the cords that I have otherwise seen in pictures of G.D. Pavel. Also, the man in the photo has less hair on his forehead than I have seen in photos of Pavel.

The photos have an embossed old-style cyrillic word at the bottom, presumably the name of photographic studio. In transliterated Russian it appears to me to be: Levtuxii . Also, the leather portfolio has the following on the back: Tonnel, 12 rue de la Paix, Paris. I checked and there is no company of that name presently at the address mentioned.

The provenance of the photos is also somewhat of a mystery.

The dealer is reputable, someone I met originally on a previous trip to Paris eight years ago. He is almost 90 and of Russian origin, though he left Russia in the 1960s. He told me he purchased them around 1970 in Rome from a relative (variously granddaughter or niece) of the former governess of G.D. Olga, the dowager Queen of Greece who was a daughter of G.D. Konstantin Nikolaevich. He also gave me reason on at least one of my visits to conclude that they had originally belonged to the Olga herself.

The specifics differed slightly during the three times I visited him, but that can be understood given his age and health and the fact that his daughter was on one occasion prompting him to recite again the provenance.

One corroborating fact is that eight years ago he had for sale a large leather portfolio containing two oval glass-covered photographs of G.D. Pavel and his first wife, Alexandra of Greece, who was Queen Olga’s daughter. (I foolishly delayed my decision to purchase it for a month during which it sold to someone else). He told me that all his Russian imperial artifacts came from this one purchase).

All that being said, why would Queen Olga’s governess (or perhaps more likely Queen Olga herself) have had three photos of the Vladimirovichi? Perhaps it was normal for members of the Imperial Family to share photos back and forth.

Any help identifying/confirming my identification as well as speculation on their provenance would be very much appreciated.

The man at left in the hussar uniform looks very much like GD Friedrich Franz III of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, brother of GDss Maria Pavlovna-younger. Anyway it was my 1st thought looking at his face.
The boy at the very left is more likely GD Kirill, eldest son of GD Vladimir. The second boy then could be GD Boris....
Undoubtedlly both men in the uniform are not the Romanovs...The man at right is a mystery though...

Thanks for your help.  It might make sense that the men are relatives of Maria Pavlovna.

Here are copies of the photographs:

I had answered this one the other thread. Reading this, Svetabel's right, one of them could be Miechen's brother.  I think the children are all the Vladimir boys since they look like some photos I've seen of them as children and in the other photo (of Miechen with her children) the boys are the same as in the photo with the 2 men.

Perhaps Beinicke has it but hasn't digitized it yet. Or maybe it's full of Anna Vyrubova's family instead of the IF. (I believe the albums are actually Anya's, not the IF's.)

As they were made in Tsarskoe and we have some shots with the mention "Livadia 1914", as the IF came to the Crimea in april, it seems the shot was done in the early 1914, but when?

Many thanks, Nena for pictures with signatures. The problem is that it proves nothing, as people often date the photo with the day they presented it to someone. In May 1914, they were in the Crimea.
Yes, Sarushka, it was certainly before the war! By the way, you know well the palaces, I do not. Are we sure the shot was in Tsarskoe? My question about datation is pure curiosity, it is not so important.

I'm not sure. I'm better at identifying the IF's private rooms, and most portraits were taken in formal rooms. I can tell you that some of the same furniture appears in the 1906, 1910, 1913, and 1914 sessions, so it's likely all four were shot in the same location.

Same chair: 1906, 1910, 1913, 1914

You might ask Ortino about this. She's much better at identifying formal rooms than I am.

Title: Re: Looking for help with Picture(s) and/or Captions
Post by: Sarushka on February 25, 2008, 08:21:19 AM
I think I have the answer now!

I noticed this bench appears in 1906, 1913, and 1916:

(http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Formals/th_BabyAleksei1.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Formals/BabyAleksei1.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Formals/th_NAOTMAA2b.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Formals/NAOTMAA2b.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Formals/th_otma1916.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Formals/otma1916.jpg)


The 1916 photo was taken in Alexandra's formal reception room at the AP. If you look closely behind Anastasia, you can see a striped couch that matches the pattern in many formal photos. All of this striped furniture -- square-backed chairs, curved-back chairs, couches, benches -- appears in formal portraits over the years:

(http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Alexander%20Palace/th_recpt15.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Alexander%20Palace/recpt15.jpg)


So because of the shared furniture, I think it's safe to conclude that the 1906, 1910, 1913, 1914, and 1916 formal photo sessions were all shot at the AP. However, with the exception of the 1916 session, I don't know which rooms the photos were taken in. I think Ortino once said that the 1913 court dress photos of the Big Pair were done in the portrait hall, and the 1906 formals in the Palisander Room, but I'm not certain.

IMO, no, it's neither of them.

I think the male looks too tall to be Aleksei. Also, the tsarevich very rarely wore a light-colored belt with his uniform. Usually it was black.

In the photos I have of GD Dmitri, his uniform appears more elaborate than the one in the photo, even on excursions along the Dneiper.

As for the woman, to me she doesn't look similar to anyone of the IF, except *maybe* Irina.

Somehow, in all my years of poring over Romanov photos, I've failed to notice the person-sized shadow behind Anastasia in this 1913 group shot:

(http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/NAOTMAA%20assorted/th_naotmaa1913.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/NAOTMAA%20assorted/naotmaa1913.jpg)


It's even more apparent in the colorized version that appears on the cover of Fall of the Romanovs:

(http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Book%20covers/th_FalloftheRomanovs.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Book%20covers/FalloftheRomanovs.jpg)


It looks to me as though the original photo was retouched to remove someone and create this well-known portrait of the imperial family. Any clues who that might have been standing behind Anastasia originally? I've never seen another version of that picture before....

Agree with Laura. And bingo for Sarushka!
Maybe it is one person, maybe not. Shadows and black-white photos makes confuses, often we see something what doesn't existed.  :D

I am also guessing Livadia.For the First one.  Why? Because I saw one Russian web of Livadia palace today, and it seems rooms very looks like at Crimea.
But, I am also bad for indentifying Imperial rooms.
Here is one room from Livadia, I am only asking who is in pictures there, and which room9on picture-bottom one)  is presented here:

On the first photo, we can see the balcony from the interior

and this is the balcony from the exterior ( with Minie on the far right )

Reco is correct on both counts.

The first photo is the old palace at Livadia. The second is Spala -- there's a photo of N&A reading telegrams in that room during Aleksei's illness in 1912.

Thank you, everyone.

Nena, are you wondering about the small paintings underneath the one of Alexei? Or the photographs? If you mean the photos, the first one on the left, top shelf is one of the 1914 photos of the Grand Duchesses. I'm pretty sure that the second on is of Irina and the third is Alexei. I'm not sure about the bottom photo; it just looks like some room with a bookcase.

Sarushka,

Reco 

Based on the balcony railings, I still believe the first photo is from Livadia. The Maly Palace has a square latticed rail that matches the one in I've circled in EmmyLee's photo:

(http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Crimea/th_1000612.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/Crimea/1000612.jpg)

In the photo you posted of Spala, the railings are decorated with spindles, not lattice.

I don't think it's Tatiana or any of the IF. The style of the clothing strikes me as wrong for the era, particularly the little girl's. It's odd that she's wearing neither socks nor stockings, and her dress is far too short for the Victorian or Edwardian age. Even as infants and toddlers, children at that time wore dresses that at least covered their knees. I'd guess this photo was taken in the 1920's or later.

I don't have photo of Anna Virburova at the moment EmmyLee posted in Rare pictures VI thread, behind her is one nurse, IMO. Would love to know who is in that one? Olga Nicholaiena? I hope you know which one I mean.

I can try scanning it in again later this week when I find time and focus it more on the woman behind Anna V. if you'd like.

Also, I saw here  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexei_Nikolaevich,_Tsarevich_of_Russia) photo behind Imperial Train was labeled 1917, I doubt it was taken in 1917. Your opinions?

True. I certainly don't know enough about the furniture in the IF's other palaces to rule out the possibility.

I think you're right. 1915 or 1916 seems more likely correct to me. To my knowledge Aleksei did not accompany his father to Stavka in 1917, and even if the photo was taken in Tsarskoye Selo it's unlikely he could have posed beside the train in the sunshine without a coat in mid-winter.

Thank you, you are kind!  :-*

I always wanted to ask, when Aleksei came to TS, after 1916? In early 1917,IMO, and why?

And, IF visited Crimea in 1915, Evtarpia, Sevastopole...Is it true that was their last trip to Crimea/South Ukraine?
Because there are some pics. of Aleksei and Tsar on beach, labeled near Lower Dacha,Peterhof,  taken in 1915. Also, I think these were taken at Crimea, in 1915. So, Peterhof or Crimea/Evtarpia?

I can not find pics. at the moment.....
Any help appreciated!

I'm pretty sure know the photos you mean. I can post them later if you like. I believe they were indeed taken at Peterhof for one simple reason: the beach at Peterhof was sandy, but the beach at the Crimea was covered in large round pebbles. The shore in the photos from 1915 is clearly sandy! ; )

Camera and the Tsars does say that photo was taken in 1916 in the Crimea. Apparently their last visit was in May of that year.

She became separately from family, in one way. So, then, could it be possible this one (http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/Romanov/Zarobljenistvo/Toboljsk_1917_1918.jpg) was indeed taken in April of 1918, labeled as Their Last group photo, taken by Pierre Gilliard, possibly? So, could it be that spring?

To describe them (from my memory):
- Postcard, or painting of Aleksei with guard holding him at Aleksander Palace, Tsarskoe Selo. I remember snow around there.
- Pic. of Big Pair with Maria ca. 1901 at Aleksander Park.
- Two pics. of Empress and her children(I think girls) on beach, in early 20th century, sand contans rocks, probably at Livadia. If I remember yrear correct, it is 1900.

Those are likely a set of postcards printed from the recently uncovered album belonging to the Tsar. You can see the reporters handling some of them in this video:

The only person I'm sure of is Tatiana. I can't tell which of the other GDss is at the rear. None of the men look like NII to me, though IMO the one at the far right seems to resemble the sailor Derevenko a bit.

Would it be possible N.P.Sablin is on far right? Maybe Voeikov, or Petrov? -- I can say because of some pics. of these men laying in others pics. with the Heir.  ; )
I think Olga either Anastasia is another Grand Duchess.
Title: Re: Looking for help with Picture(s) and/or Captions
Post by: Condecontessa on December 14, 2008, 10:25:56 AM
In the book "Nicholas and Alexandra" (It's the giant exhibition book!) p.321, the picture is a little bit clearer and to me the person on the far right is definitely Nicholas II. There's a picture of him standing by himself in the same area and the clothing is similar. Plus, the other Grand Duchess is Anastaisa because she was wearing a darker color sweater/jacket than Olga. As for the other 2 people in the photo, I can't even guess who. But there is a pic before the above picture where they were standing in a line. It seems Grand Duke Dmitry was with them that day.
Title: Re: Looking for help with Picture(s) and/or Captions
Post by: Sarushka on December 14, 2008, 02:10:15 PM
Looking at page 321, I think the GD at the rear is more likely Maria; Anastasia's long hair is visible in other pictures from the same day, and this mystery GD seems to be wearing her hair up. The dark clothing does rule out Olga, though. Also, I don't see any sign of Nicholas's beard on the man at the far right...
Title: Re: Looking for help with Picture(s) and/or Captions
Post by: nena on December 14, 2008, 03:17:43 PM
Thank you both. You are right, Grand Duke Dmitrii oftenly visited Tsar, probably because of Rasputin, he wanted to gave Tsar better picture of that man. But, come back on the thread. If we compare other pictures of GDs from that time, we can consider Olga wore light, but Anastasia dark dress.
I think I have more questions about photos, but later!  : )

Page 39:
"Nicholas was an exemplary family man. Not only was he a loving husband but a devoted father. His favorite company everywhere was his children, "to whom," says Pares, "he was at once Emperor, father, and comrade." In the picture above, father and daughters, out for a sail on the Dnieper, would seem to be in a somber mood. Left to right Anastasia, Olga, and Maria (1916)"

I thought that, too, and couldn't decide whether I believed Grabbe or not. Grabbe does misidentify names and dates in other captions, so it's quite possible he was wrong in this instance as well. My trouble is that the second and third GDss both look a bit like Maria to me...

I would guess this is somewhere in Livadia. It looks like a room prepared for one of the empress's charity bazaars, so it might not even be in the palace. I believe her bazaars were held in the town of Yalta.

"Nixa" was the nickname of Alexander III's elder brother, Nicholas Alexandrovich, who died in 1865.

Nicholas II, also Nicholas Alexandrovich, was called "Nicky/Niki" among family.

I'm not aware of either of them being called "Niks."

I don't think it's the IF at all. The style of the men's clothing isn't right for the era, especially the hats. In all my photos of NAOTMAA in public, there's not a single bowler derby in the crowd; all the men are wearing military caps or top hats instead. Also, it's also very rare to find the IF so closely surrounded by both male and female civilians unless they're visiting relatives abroad. IMO this photo was more likely taken in the late 1910's or early 1920's, possibly in England or elsewhere in western Europe.

There is a man in uniform on the right, outside the velvet-draped seating area -- perhaps one of our military experts could identify it?

The picture displays GDss Maria Alexandrovna, Duchess of Edinburgh and Coburg (the aged lady in front in the plumage hat). By her side (at her right) is her cousin GD Mikhail Mikhailovitch, who was married to Countess Sophie of Merenberg. The girl in profile at left is Princess Marie Melita of Hohenlohe-Langenrburg, GDss' Maria A. granddaughter. The boy near Marie Melita is her brother Gottfried.

You mean the one in the top right corner? And the one under it? But this photos feature only OTA... Well, the photo in the top right corner is labeled as "Саблинь ІІ, Неверовский, В.К. Ольга, Бюцова (or Бющова , not sure about if its ц/щ ), В.К. Анастаси́я, В.К. Татьяна, Саблинь ІІІ и Честяковь" The one under it is labeled as "Тоже", which actually means... "same", or "also"; so the people in the two pics are the same. As far as I know, Buxhoeveden is Буксгевден in Russian, and she's not mentioned there. And she doesn't look like her to me...

Marlene will know best -- you might want to PM her.

The vast majority of Romanov photos available online are NOT up for grabs. Most NAOTMAA fansites are not using photographs legally to begin with, so you don't want to download them and use them for anything you plan to publish.

Although the original copyrights for photos printed before 1923 have expired, that doesn't mean anybody can use any photo they want. If YOU own an original photograph or postcard printed before 1923, you are free to use it as you please. Otherwise you must ask permission. Images reprinted in books you own are not up for grabs, either. Authors and/or publishers must ask (and often pay for) permission to print archival photos in books, which means they can take legal action against anyone for scanning and publishing or uploading images they've purchased rights to.

Unfortunately there's no simple method. It's a matter of finding an archive or collector who owns the images you're interested in, and requesting permission.

An exception: the Yale Beinecke albums. As far as I've been able to determine, you may use those images free of cost as long as you acknowledge the source.

i know i have seen 3 taken of the same day but i can't remember where i saw one of them it's was where they all looked like they were having a picnic or some friendly get together and it must be around 1914 because Tatiana has the "bob" the one i can't remember where i last saw it was Anastasia's near Tatiana who is sitting and there both looking back at the camera. And Anastasia has that bow tie or whatever in her hair and it's at the side. Am i getting anymore confusing to anyone other than myself? should i post one so someone knows what the heck I'm referring to?

This is a long shot, but I'm looking for a photo of Olga Nikolaievna, taken at Rasputin's funeral. I think Lanie posted it quite awhile back.
There are two photos allegedly from Rasputin's funeral -- there's really no way to prove it's his funeral, but that's how they've been labeled. They were obviously taken in the winter, and I believe it's been documented that AOT went to work at the lazaret after the burial (hence the nurses uniforms), so it's possble...

(http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/NAOTMAA%20assorted/Snow/th_bigpairalixwinter2.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/NAOTMAA%20assorted/Snow/bigpairalixwinter2.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/NAOTMAA%20assorted/Snow/th_bigpairalixwinter.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/NAOTMAA%20assorted/Snow/bigpairalixwinter.jpg)

And yes, these are courtesy of Lanie's collection.


Well, I was reading something, and I am not agreed that these were taken at Rasputin's funeral. Rather it would be funeral of a soldier, for example. But, as I have noticed, could these have been taken during last visit to Novgorod, in the late 1916? . I am pretty certain their dresses have something to do with Church, at least, tent looks like to be belonged to the person who devoted life to Church. (to that Maria Mikhailovna), and I see peasants, so it is most likely NOT Starets' funeral.And one 100 years old fortune teller, Maria Mikhailovna, told to Alexandra that she would be Martyred in Future. The bad things is, we don't have at least, proper year of these photos. I am sure they were taken during war.

--------------------------------------------------------

The Empress - The Emperor (17.12.1916): "... The emotional intensity of these past difficult months, of course, was reflected in a weak heart, this wonderful trip to Novgorod was physically very tiring - that old machine, and came into disrepair."

AA Vyrubova: "Two days after our return from Novgorod, it was December 17, started" bloodless revolution "the murder of Rasputin. December 16 Empress sent me to Grigory Efimovich to give him an icon, brought from Novgorod "

 Rasputin was not a "staretz". He was a strannik.

No photographs were taken at Rasputin's funeral.

The picture  of Alexandra with the Big Pair in the black robes.... the robes seem to be covering their nurses uniforms. Could it be they are leaving a religious ceremony ? They look  too cheerful for a funeral ...also it looks like they are "in the field", that is away from AP

I'd rather say 1907. (Children in dark sailor uniforms).

The first one at least was taken in 1908, because the youngest child in that picture (Theodora) was only born in June 1906, and she cannot be less than two. She and her sister Margarita were staying with the Tsar's family in July 1908 while their parents visited their father's relatives in Denmark and Sweden; so I am assuming this picture was taken then - though it looks cold, it must be summer!

Some of the other pictures here may have been taken a year earlier - e.g. the pics in white dresses - but the dark sailor suits are similar to ones I have seen from Finland in 1908, including the famous pic of Tatiana, Marie and Anastasia playing in the sand with the giant stride.

Hi Ally and Nena
       Glad to be of assistance! :-) One of the first royal(ish!) photo books I ever saw was "Mountbatten, eighty years in pictures", which my grandmother had when I was a child. There are numerous infant pics of Margarita and Dolla with their young "Uncle Dickie" in that book, so the two of them are instantly regonisable to me still.

I believe that Sarushka is correct.  Then the photos above were taken at Peterhof  in the porch with the awnings and drapes [right side of palace].

I would agree with that. Seems to me, before the big pair's hair went up, dark clothing + walking sticks = Germany.

I also read those are from 1910, Germany visit.

Meanwhile I have found this picture on ebay lablled as Grand Duke Georgiy - which I dare say is wrong. On the second look though I thought it might be little Grand Duke Pavel Alexandrovich. What do you think?

Post by: Condecontessa on March 04, 2010, 02:27:40 PM
I'm sorry if I misled anyone about the year of the pics that otmaprivatealbum originally asked. The reason why I was doubting Germany is that in the book "Nicholas and Alexandra: Family Albums" on page 92, there's a similar picture of Alexei and it states Livadia Crimea. Plus, Alexei and Anastasia looked young in the pics. Remember the formal sitting of OTMAA with the flowers behind them that was taken in Darmsdadt? They seem older in that pic. And if you go to the Beinecke website, there are pictures of OTMA with Anna Vyrubova taken at the Crimea in 1909 and the grand duchesses were all wearing dark clothing and holding walking sticks (I believe Anastasia was holding one).That's why I said that I think it was 1909 and at Livadia :)

Almost every time I see these the caption says they are taken in 1907 (some russian caption says August 1907) but I think Alexei looks far too young to be three years old! I think the year has to be 1906 and these

Sarah, although this man looks surprisingly similiar to Admiral Mountbatten, but it seems to me that this is not him. This man is wearing the British Naval uniform, but with the Lieutenant rank, while Mountbatten served in the WWI only as a Midshipman and received Lieutennant rank in 1920. I think that this is one of the Royal Navy Officers who often visited Petersburg and have the official meetings with IF.

However I'm not a big expert about Mountbatten's life and can not be aware of some details;).

The woman is Alexandrine, wife of the future Christian X (and a princess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin by birth, granddaughter of Mikhail Nikolaevich). The baby would be the future Fredrik IX of Denmark.

Agree. Way too old for Dickie., who I think last saw his Russian cousins in 1910 in Germany (though he was later to state that he met them again in 1913 in Germany, no-one else recorded such a visit and I think his memory was playing tricks.).
George was part of the British squadron commanded by david Beattie which visited Russia just before war broke out.

This is from earlier in the thread, I know, but no one ever answered the question of who and where this is!

http://img352.imageshack.us/i/scan00366oo.jpg/

I can read the Russian but it simply says Tsar Family at Sickbed of Alexei. (my translation is bad but this is general idea!)

To me, it looks like Maria in the bed, with sisters and parents all around. So why does the Russian label it Alexei's sickbed? Was Maria borrowing it? What year is this? What ROOM is this? lol I'm demanding, I know.

Thanks to anyone who can help!

Judging by Tatiana's wig, this was probably taken sometime in 1913 or possibly early 1914. I've seen the room identified as Livadia, but the wallpaper and carpet don't match the photo I have of Aleksei's bedroom there. Perhaps it's the Little Pair's room?

Another possibility: Peterhof. The chintz on the screen and piece of furniture to the left of the image look very similar to patterns visible in rooms at Peterhof.

Probably for the same reason photos of Nicholas II in a wheelchair in during his recover from typhoid in 1899 are often labeled as taken in captivity -- it makes a better story.

That one is always extra madding in the misidentification game...he's so young  in that photo, how could it be 1918? A better story, and it was helped along, I think, because  the photo of wheel chair later found at Ipatiev House seems to match the wheel chair in the 1899 photo.

I think it's Grand Duchess Maria. If you refer back to the book titled "The Diary of Grand Duchess Olga Nicholaeivna - 1913", an entry of grand Duchess Olga on August 24 states that "Marie is lying down, but she is better." Even her entry on August 23 states Marie's temperature. And I wonder if the pic was taken on August 26 because there is an entry that states " Together sat with M[arie], who is in bed, as well as Mama." It seems the Grand Duchess Maria was ill from August 22 - 29, 1913.

I zoomed in and looked at the face it does looks like Maria with her hair pinned up early already... i saw what look like a strand of hair unpinned and the face looks like hers... if it's early 1914 like Sarushka's possibility in the quote above points out ("possibly early 1914")... didn't Maria get her tonsils out in 1914 and didn't she hemorrhage? Maybe if it's after that maybe the hemorrhaging had some ill effects on her for a bit? I don't know!

If I recall correctly, Maria's tonsils were removed in December. That late in 1914 Tatiana was no longer wearing a wig, and the imperial family was back at Tsarskoe Selo.

My description of this photo is:

"Emperor Nicholas II, his daughters and an officer in the gardens of the Farm Palace in Peterhof, 1914-15."

I guess the reason is because it looks to me that this is the same arbor as in the photo below which is located at the Alexandria Park Farm Palace. Check out the vines running up the posts and the spacing of the lattice on top of the arbor. They appear to be the same to me, though, I may be way off.

Some corrections about this interesting man. I firstly mistaken about his "suicide". Thank to the person with nickname "cosser" across the Russian internet. Btw, Demenkov's confusion with Butakov is also him/her "work";).

Zborowski Victor Erastovich (1889 - 9. 10. 1944, Austria). Russian Officer, WWI and White Guard military commander. Fought on the Nazi's side against the USSR. Major General during WWII (Oberst). Holder of the Iron Cross (received just before his death from the injuries).

Born in 1889 in Cuban. Graduated from the Moscow Kadet Corps and Nicholas Military school. From 1912, Officer of the HIM Cossack Convoy. Fought in the WWI where was  seriously injured. Treated in the Tsarskoe of GD hospital. Participated in the Rus. Civil War on the White's side in different positions, Regiments and with different ranks, from Sotnik to Colonel (commanded HIM Convoy in 1920). Emigrated to Yugoslavia.

And the most interesting: in December of 1941 joined the Russian Corps in Serbia. Corps fought against the USSR and Yugoslav partisans on the Axis side. Commanded the 1st Cossack Regiment. Participated in the different serious battles and was deadly injured in 1944. Received Iron Cross just before his dead. Later 1st Cossack Regiment was named after him. Buried in Graz.

http://highway55.library.yale.edu/ROMANOVIMG/size4/D0106/1000225.jpg

My description of this photo is:

"Emperor Nicholas II, his daughters and an officer in the gardens of the Farm Palace in Peterhof, 1914-15."

I guess the reason is because it looks to me that this is the same arbor as in the photo below which is located at the Alexandria Park Farm Palace. Check out the vines running up the posts and the spacing of the lattice on top of the arbor. They appear to be the same to me, though, I may be way off.

http://highway55.library.yale.edu/ROMANOVIMG/size4/D0014/00144011.jpg

My description of this photo (above) is:

"Villa of Maria Feodorovna, the Farm Palace, Alexandria Park, Peterhof."

BTW, just guessing, but that may be a horse trough in the first photo, albeit an ornate one.

Regards,
 
Katya C.


You're right, Katya -- the photo is labeled as Peterhof in Vyrubova's album #3 at Beinecke:

http://beinecke.library.yale.edu/dl_crosscollex/romanov/oneITEM.asp?pid=1000221&iid=1000221&srchtype= (http://beinecke.library.yale.edu/dl_crosscollex/romanov/oneITEM.asp?pid=1000221&iid=1000221&srchtype=)

Thanks for the verification. I believe that the officer in photo #1000225 is "Commander Zborowski of the Convoy of His Majesty."

He is also in Beinecke photo's #1000231, 1000232, 1000233, 1000234, 1000235 & probably 1000236.

I don't remember where I found the above info., but assume it was from a reasonably reliable source.

Thanks again,

Katya C.

Standart, Polar Star.

Probably for the same reason photos of Nicholas II in a wheelchair in during his recover from typhoid in 1899 are often labeled as taken in captivity -- it makes a better story.

Correct - IMO, newspapers were those who labeled that photo to have been taken at Ipatiev House, to demand the stories about Tsar's execution in 'June conspiracies', and to show his safety at Yekaterinburg.

GD George, Maud (guess), Xenia, Alexander III, Michael, Victoria (Toria)

Okay which is which? I'm guess one is Nicky the other George! So who's the man behind Alexandra and who's behind Tatiana (one wearing brown sipping I'm guessing tea) the other in white... this is driving me crazy!

My five cents;)

"White uniform" here - the military common/summer uniform of the Naval Guard Crew. Although Alexander Michailovich at that time (1914-1917) was an unofficial leader/patron of the Imperial Air force, he wears his native Naval uniform and Vice Admiral/General Adjutant epaulets (~1914/1915).

Nicholas II on these photos is in his ordinary and beloved Suite's uniform, with Order of St. George and Colonel epaulets.

Post by: matushka on June 17, 2010, 06:08:26 AM
And my 2 cents :)
These pictures were probably done the 28th May 1914 in the Crimea.
See NII's diary:
После 12 час. поехали на Эриклик, куда собралось все общество из Харакса и Кичкенэ, и Ксения и Сандро с сыновьями.
Завтракали в столовой и потом сидели в саду. День стоял чудный с бризом, жара такая легкая.
В 3 часа гости разъехались и мы пошли пешком в Ливадию.

English approximative translation: "After 12 o'clock we went to Eriklik where was assembled the whole Haraks and Kichkene's society with Xenia, Sandro and their sons. We had lunch in the dinning room and then stayed in the garden. The day was marvellous with breeze (...) At 3 (...) we went to Livadia by foot.

Not from the Imperial Family and that could be any noble woman from the beginning of the 1900s. Many portraits in the restored and open to public Palaces are often just a beautiful covering of the wall - to freshen the interior.

Tea at the farm: Can anyone tell me who the young men with the family and N. P. Sabline ? They have the same uniform it seems...can they simply be young men from the yacht? They seem very at ease with the family and the family seems at  ease with them. They standing behind  Sabline in one of the photos...so perhaps they are connected with him ? His nephews? If simply Standart crew members, I wonder why they were chosen...they are seated at the table...not serving etc.  The photos are from Yale and Anya captioned them "tea  at the farm" ....1914 of course.

Hmmm...good question!...There were no a lot of Herzogins of Mecklenburg-Strelitz...but the painting is puzzled me actually.

Marc, I think now those are really Ekaterina M. and her husband Georg of Mecklenbourg-Strelitz in the 1850s.

I'm looking for a specific picture of GD Olga Alexandrovna and Nikolai Kulikovsky.

It's one that can be found in the first edition of The Last Grand Duchess, and it's labelled as the couple celebrating their silver wedding anniversary.

My copy, unfortunately, is missing all of its photographs, so I don't know which picture this is.

Does anyone have it, and can post it?  It would be most appreciated.

Although painted in 1904(she married 5 years later),could this be maybe Maria Pavlovna junior?

I think that couldn't be her...no real resemblance. The question is that who labelled the portrait "Olga of Sweden"...

The real question...and why?Based on...?And the name of Olga with Swedish royal family?

The only connection with Russia and Swedish royal family was Maria,so somehow I assumed it could be her...

On the other thread(Scandinavian Royals) I posted the same question,Rani posted a comparative picture and thinks it could be Maria...

Here is a link,scroll own for Rani's post and tell what you think:

I still think that's not Maria. I don't see any resemblance and also Marie's colouring was not such a brunette type.

I'm madly looking for the very first pic of the IF I've seen - the one from which my obsession began!
It was in a italian magazine, some 12 years ago (i know this not relevant at all) but i've lost it (grrr) and, moreover, i've never seen it again - it was not a fake, i'm sure. Maybe it was just very rare.
The resolution was very poor, and it came from one of Anastasia's album - it was partly coloured, most in red and pink, so i think it was Anastasia's colouring (she always used red and pink...)
I know i'm asking you something impossible - just try.
In the pics there were only Nicholas, Aleksandra, and OMA. No Tat'jana nor Aleksej. Aleksandra and Ol'ga were sitting in a carriage, one on front of the other. Nicholas was sitting on the footboard, Marija was standing at a side, near Ol'ga (on the far right, looking at the pic) and Anastasia was leaning to the carriage, just behind her mother - at the far left.
I'm quite sure the year was 1917, during the captivity in Zarskoje: the photo was labelled "The tsar and his family in captivity", but 'im sure not for it, but beacause all the girls - even Anastasija - had their hair gathered up, and they were those kind of clothes they used when they work in the garden during Tsarskoe captivity. Moreover, Nicholas and Aleksandra looked quite old, and very tired.
I know it's so difficult to understand which picture I mean - and now I know it's rare, but it's so important to me.
If anyone has already seen it... i thank you with all my heart!  :D

As you can see, it's labelled as a rare photo of Alix with Aleksej. But... but the baby seems to be MARIA, to me!

Good reproduction--at last.

In the last few years there are literally thousands of royalty photos being posted on the internet that most users have never seen before.

Where are these photographs emanating from?

Something is better than nothing but that said the most important criteria in marketing or presenting historical photographs is CLARITY. Even a photo published ad nauseum increases in value if there is an improvement in sharpness and clarity. Pictures previously unpublished, candids, and unconventional poses are also highly coveted. Unfortunately, the majority of photos reproduced depicting the Russian Royal family are gauze and haze--anything but clear. The photographs taken of Russian peasants in the 19th & early 20th Century are more distinct.

My best guess - Ropsha Palace Gardens, 1907, Tatiana.

I'd love to hear others' opinions.

Hi all



Can anyone give me a location and a year on this one? Also, I know MAA is there, but who is the other girl? O or T?

The other looks like Prince Alice of Greece,nee Battenberg,cousin of OTMAA.

Tatiana is there, second from top. The topmost girl isn't Olga.

Svetabel - the caption listened it as being Anna Vyrubova but I haven't seen enough of her to really make any kind of decision on that. Nena and Rodney - I agree that it is Tatiana but I wanted to see what others thought.

I do think that's Princess Alice in the top.

Here's a photo for comparison

Somehow, in all my years of poring over Romanov photos, I've failed to notice the person-sized shadow behind Anastasia in this 1913 group shot:

(http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/NAOTMAA%20assorted/th_naotmaa1913.jpg) (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y285/sarahelizabethii/Romanov/NAOTMAA%20assorted/naotmaa1913.jpg)


It's even more apparent in the colorized version that appears on the cover of Fall of the Romanovs:

Although this post is desperately old, can some give me more information about this photo, or please direct me to a thread that gives more information?  It always intrigued me as the clothing (especially the ladies) is not what I am used to seeing them wear.  My guess is about 1913 or '14, but what is interesting is the dark clothing.  I am used to seeing the Romanov ladies always in light colored clothing (except mourning of course).  Any info of date, location, occasion would be greatly appreciated.

It looks to me as though the original photo was retouched to remove someone and create this well-known portrait of the imperial family. Any clues who that might have been standing behind Anastasia originally? I've never seen another version of that picture before....

I think that was taken on Alix's  balcony and what is behind them are large curtains...but in some copies you can see suggestions of  people behind the curtains and it looks like ghosts...in the 1915 photo of Alix in morning, waiting to go to Grand Duke Konstantin Konstantinovich's funeral, one can see an officer behind the curtain   http://tinyurl.com/kbgkgxh

I believe that the photo was taken in Yalta in 1913. There doesn't appear to be anybody standing behind Anastasia. Here is another version of the photo:

From the book:
The Last Russian Empress
The Life and Tragedy of Alexandra Feodorovna Empress of Russia
by Baroness Sophie Buxhoeveden

Excerpt: "In the autumn of 1913 the Imperial Family went to Livadia. The old Palace had been pulled down and a beautiful new one had been built on its site. This was in the Italian style, and the Empress had taken the keenest interest in planning it, remembering and reproducing many things that she had seen in Italy, the cloisters of San Marco in Florence being used as a model for the central courtyard, where all assembled after lunch. There were many beautiful antiques in the reception rooms, and ancient Greek marbles, found in excavations in the Crimea, in the gardens. The Empress was specially interested in the gardens, and spent hours driving about in her pony carriage, planning improvements. The scenery was lovely. Livadia was situated half-way up a mountain, with the majestic Ai-Petri as a background, and the rocky beach below."

Those were indeed taken in the spring of 1914, during the last visit to Livadia. However, their last visit to Crimea occurred in May of 1916, when the IF visited Sevastopol and Evpatoria.

I recently had the great fortune of acquiring "Little Mother of Russia" and I've been skimming through it. For her official entry into St. Petersburg, Dagmar is said to be wearing "the Russian national dress - a gold-embroidered blue sarafan with the traditional half-moon-shaped headdress, the Kokoshnik, in blue silk studded with diamonds." Then for when she was received into the Orthodox Church, "a white satin dress... In a blue velvet train edged with pearls... A Kokoshnik studded with precious gems..." Pages 38 and 39

Does anyone have any photos of her on these days? I would love to see them.

I've seen photos from that day labelled Tsarskoe Selo.

I don't know of any 1860s/1870s photos of Maria Feodorovna wearing a kokoshnik or a court dress, which is a little surprising IMO.

From what I remember reading in "Little Mother of Russia" and other books the schedule of Maria Feodorovna's arrival was jam packed with ceremonies and events. They had very little time to themselves and when they did it was mainly to refresh themselves.

I could be wrong but I would be very surprised if there were any photos taken during that time, especially since it took so long. I have seen a painting of her arrival with Maria Alexandrovna in a carriage but they were wearing the fashion of the period, not Russian national costume.

According to the Historical State Museum (Moscow) this is a court dress of Maria Feodorovna from the 1860s.

Guys, I don't know whether this had been discussed before or not, but I'd like to hear your opnion -- do you think that this photo of Joy was actually taken at Tobolsk? Is there any caption on regarding the Joy's photo? Is that photo cropped?

I am asking since if you compare the door in the background, it look so similar to the actual doors of the Governor's mansion at Tobolsk.

The bottom one was presumably taken in Germany, since it is captioned in German. That, and the photo of Nicholas, were certainly taken outside Russia, since they are in civilian clothes (as Russian officers, they always wore uniform in Russia). I would hazard a guess that all the pictures were taken on a visit to Darmstadt.

The caption on the bottom picture could give the date as 1895, but it isn't complete. It might be 1896, 1898 or 1903, but not 1905, since Sergei was killed on 17 February 1905.

The bottom one says Grand Duke Serge of Russia (in German) anf gives his death date, so it's not when or where it was taken.
But I think you are right that they were taken outside Russia most probably in early 1900s. I know there are several versions of the picture of the Hessian sisters.

Could they have been taken in Darmstadt during the wedding of Princess Alice of Battenberg and Prince Andrew of Greece? I'm just thinking when all four sisters, Nicholas and GD Sergei were abroad together.
