I like VERY MUCH the picture Clock post, as I am very interested in OT and AF`s work in the lazaret. Thank you, this is new for me. I guess it is end of 1914? Is that right? And who is the woman near the Empress? Is that the princess Gedroits? I can not recognize her, but it is probably her, isn`t it?

This one has most likely been posted on here already but I'm doing a test run of a thumbnail post so I thought this would be appropriate.  It's always been my favorite photo of the big pair and I scanned it from Camera and the Tsars so it's a bit grainy.

Hi!

Here is the same pic in better quality. There are lots more of Olga and Tatiana alone from this session, but of the sisters together, I think it's the only one from the 1904 photoshooting.

Here (http://s17.photobucket.com/albums/b74/clockworkgirl21/OT/) are some photos of OT that I think and rare-ish. I got most of them from around here, so you have probably seen them.

If you mean the 1904 session done at Aleksei's christening, no, I've never seen any other photos of Olga & Tatiana together.


If you mean the 1916 session Emily posted, I've also never seen a photo of the big pair together, but there is another of Tatiana alone:

And here's a better quality version of the one Emily posted:

The colour is excellent and I find that the one who colorized this photo, made a great choice colourizing the girls dresses. I imagined them exactly like he/she colourized them: cream coloured. I find this pic very natural, as if the colours were from real.

That's from 1913 -- you can tell by Tatiana's wig. This is also from that session:

The vast majority of the formal photos of the Big Pair are from the 1913 session.

Indeed they do Shammy! I recently got a Swedish post card of that photo and  it seems to make the card , instead of printing it, they took a photo of the photo...because there doesn't seem to be the usual dots that is on printed matter.When you enlarge printed items, the  dots enlarge too. But since I couldn't see dots, I immediately went to the scanner and enlarged the post card. I was going to start a new topic with it , one where people can share their large files of  known photos.....I still might! . But then I saw this thread and  it's a nice fit. I love the larger files of the photos. It's almost like seeing a new one, so much more comes into view.

That's correct -- you can see the canvas backing that was put behind the open rails when the imperial children visited. The rails of the Standart were solid, specifically for the purpose of the children's safety.

Livadia, IMO. The tall, conical evergreen on the far left matches trees shown in other photos taken at NAOTMAA's Crimean estates:

Post by: nena on June 21, 2011, 01:31:34 AM
Yes, it is Livadia, definitely. And the photo was surely taken at the beginning of the XX century, if the girl on the photo is Anasatsia, but I'd rather say it is Maria, so the photo was taken somewhere around 1901/2.

Great detective work Sarushka. The trees are good indication of the location of the pic. Now definitely Livadia but I think 1900. I have to read Spiridovitch's book to find out for how long the IF stayed at Livadia.

Yes it was a quite high, man made hill where the Imperial Family, and guests viewed the military reviews...you can see it was quite windy up there, but at least not as dusty and had  a great view naturally . It's interesting because one of the photos was taken on top on the same level as the girls and the other seems to be taken a bit below...there were stairs  to go up and down

Who are those girls? That's a new one for me, and you say it's from 1914 . . . I guess it would be Maria and Anastasia, but it looks like Olga and Tatiana with their hair down. That is, if that picture is from 1914 . . .

Definitely not 1914. I'd guess 1910ish by Olga's hair.

I bet we could date it more precisely by Nicholas's armband -- he was in mourning for someone.

I  recently proved  ( imo) she is not wearing the same uniform in her photos  that we   have today and is  is known as TN uniform. Undoubtedly  it is hers ...but it's not the  uniform we see her wearing . She seems to have had at least two. Yellow would not look like that in b/w and I have never seen  a photo of her wearing  the yellow uniform known today as TN's uniform...it was one of them...but not THE one imo

http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=5568.30

It starts with reply 41

I believe the V shape piece and cuffs  we see her actually wearing were black as they are darker than the navy of the suit

They match. But neither match the photos we have of TN wearing her uniform ...even the shoulder boards are diffrent .

Indeed Marie was there. Who else but these girls can make a pile of  hay and logs seem so charming? They look like they are  pretending to be rare animals themselves ....and they seemed amused.... while taking a photo, they often seem to be thinking  of how it will look later and the laughter it will bring. Much of their amusement when the bald photo in AP was taken, was over  thinking of their parents reaction upon seeing the print

Yes, things that would seem so very simple and ordinary to an average person, (like a pile of hay and logs,) was probably looked upon like something fun and exotic to those girls so un-used to such things. Likely it appealed to them firstly because their parents would be so shocked, (especially their mother!) and because it was so ordinary and regular-citizen-ish. I'm sure they'd have gotten a kick out of the general public of the time seeing those photos! I bet that even if they were labeled as being of the Grand Duchesses, nobody would believe it. Or if they did, they'd be scandalized beyond anything!  :D But that was when they were happiest, hiding in hay lofts and such.

It was in 1899 during their trip to Germany(?)-I think they went there after(or before) the trip to Denmark; there are photos from that time with Grand Duke Ernest, Prince Nicholas of Greece & many shots with Victoria Melita.

Hold on one second: If it was taken in a *doorway* at Livadia and it wasn't a *formal* shot, why did Tatiana have her wig on? Did she just wear it all the time? It must have gotton awfully scratchy.

Exactly...TN wore the wig  at this time  for photos generally, not just formals for the 1913  There are other Livadia  photos taken at this time where TN is wearing the wig...it had to be hot ! One can often pick out the wig because of its small and  straight fringe...unlike how TN wore her real hair
Title: Re: Photos of "The Big Pair"
Post by: Olga Bernice on August 16, 2011, 08:24:14 PM
Yes, blessOTMA, and looking at the way Olga's hair is fixed - two bangs split in the middle (okay, maybe that's not very accurate, but deal with me here ;-)) - to Tatiana's, with the straight hairline - one can definitely tell the difference, now that I really look. Funny, I had to have a certain Forum member - I think it might have been you, blessOTMA - tell me. Hmm.

I would sometimes wear wigs when I went trick-or-treating on Halloween (good 'ole Nancy Drew!) and even with hair it got so itchy after just a couple of hours that I can't even imagine what Tatiana's felt like!
Title: Re: Photos of "The Big Pair"

Tatiana's wig likely would have been of the highest quality -- probably human hair -- but even so I'm not sure there's such a thing as an itch-free wig...

Indeed...I believe she complained about wearing it later...but just the fact it doesn't scream " wig " , that one has to wonder if it is or isn't , means it was of highest quality. That's not easily achieved...seems to me

Yeah, because she had that long hair, and a picture of her in post 1914 I believe, but she's in the sick room lying down in bed. Her hair is either twisted or braided.

IMO it was more of a twist than a bun. I'm not sure whether or not it was braided first. This is the best photo I know of for details of the back of Olga's hair:

(The photo of her in braids in her cot indicates that she probably wore her hair loosely braided to sleep.)

Okay (and I muse) . . . if Olga turned 16 on the 3/16 of November, she would have been "late" in the year - and what I mean by that, her coming-out ball was at the end of the year. Tatiana's 16th birthday was in May, so her "coming-out ball *would have been* near the middle of the year. (She never got to have one officially, did she? Or am I just missing something? :-[) Anyway, in the picture posted by larri-otmaprivatealbums, then it would have been after May 29, 1913. (Wasn't her ball held off because of the tricentinial (isn't that the word?) celebrations, then, of course, the war? That's going to bug me!) Anywhoo, I do love their poses in that one, Larri. Beautiful.

I also like the one that Olgasha published. It looks like they had the same amount of fashion sense that Princess Kate has today!

 In the Great War Forums Eastern front section there is a posting where they have a link to the Russian wartime magazine War Notes Voennie Letpis genrogge.ru. It contains quite a few wartime photos of the IF and the captions of the photos are translated roughly into English so you usually know what time period ect at least the photos were taken. Some of these photos i have never seen before. Just thought you would like to know.

terrific find, thanks. A treasure trove of infomation

This was interesting because it showed a photo I had seen of the girls, but not in full like this.

Is that Count Grabbe on the left? I think the cropped version of that photo may be in his book.

I was wondering that. There is a photo in that book of the Tsar, TN and Alexi which could be from the same day.  I have seen the photo of the girls, and I believe AF,  in a 1918 UK publication... and other places but always close cropped to their figures....now I see they are clearly on a battle ship or cruiser of some sort. The other photos of the IF that I saw  are fairly well known...but this on line magazine would provide a wealth of  information about those photos of hospital visits and other trips etc. Seemingly every issue has a report about a IF war work related trip

i think the ship they were on in picture 1697 could be the Battleship "Imperial Catherine" in picture 1658 there is a group picture of them with the officers of this ship which looks like it was taken the same day. this is because it looks like OTMA have the same hats ect on in both pictures. Nicholas did visit the battleship "Imperial Maria" this same day 12 may 1916 so it could possibly that ship as well. I do agree with you blessOTMA it does look like a battleship and i don't think it looks big enough for any of the Black sea fleets crusiers. This looks like it might be a goverment put out publication so you can see why they have so much of the IF in it.

I was thinking that as well...But lacking the name of the ship this resource provides!...thanks again, It's a gold mine generally for anyone wishing to follow the IF movements during the war. Indeed nena, a full version always adds so much! It's like being able to open one's eyes wider!

I love these portrait photos from 1913 of Alix and the girls. But they have fascinated me as well. They seem to have been taken just moments apart and yet the the attitude between them is very diffrent. In the first one , even though Olga looks a bit prideful, she's not unfriendly . The other girls are smiling beautifully , and Alix seems to have a whisper of a smile as well. Then look at the next one...Olga looks furious , as if she could hit someone and the other's  smiles have  disappeared. Marie seems to be feeling her mother's  pulse! ( her heart may suddenly go to 3!)  One has to wonder if something was inadvertently said in the time between the two photographs. Of course the sequence could have gone from stormy to bright...as I say, fascinating

I have seen this photo of the family identified in print as 1915 and even 1916.
But to me, TN is wearing the famous wig, which should make it 1913.
In fact it one of the most false looking photos of the wig....usually  it looks better

I agree about the date. If it were 1915 or 1915 Maria's hair should be up as well.

Also, IMO, this photo has been photoshopped. The outlines of the IF  -- particularly the empress and the GDss -- are remarkably crisp, which makes me think they've been superimposed on a different background. In this scan you can even see the vague silhouette of a man behind Alix and Anastasia, as though somebody's been poorly erased:

I second both of you. The wig is... i don't know, it seems a hat, or something strange, but not hair to me. Since i've seen other photos of TN with her wig, and sometimes i thought it was her hair, well, here the looking of it is awful so i think it was retouched.

Yes as often the case, it's been over done when painted. Less is usually more in such matters. It actually looks like a globe sitting on her head!. The real wig ( is that an  oxymoron? : a figure of speech that combines contradictory terms.)   looked better than that.

Now who is the person on the right?

The apparatus on TN looks very diffrent from the other's suits. One can see the air chambers...and imo Derevenko would not be doing any thing to her  plain suit. She would have that on before coming to the pool. However he would in chage of anything else needed. I expect he tied it on and then blew it up for her lol!  Indeed ON is on the right.... However who is on the extreme right? I can't figure that out ....too young and thin to be Anya. 
Title: Re: Photos of "The Big Pair"
Post by: Sarushka on February 15, 2012, 07:43:00 AM
IMO, the person on the far right is too young to be anyone but a GD. I think it's actually Tatiana, Maria, and then Olga.
Title: Re: Photos of "The Big Pair"
Post by: blessOTMA on February 15, 2012, 09:11:57 PM
To me the figure on the far right is dressed differently, in that her cap are suit are diffrent and imo that 's significant. I'm voting for perhaps a cousin.....because indeed she's too young to be a lady in waiting etc.....and she doesn't look like OTMA to me.... As for Marie, I'm voting ( jokingly)  for the quite solid leg next to Alexis on the staris lol

Yes, I believe it's Mitia... He looks so gloomy and sullen.
The man at right, down is probably Vladimir Kiknadze:

I think they weared  robes over their uniforms when they came to the hospital after they were discharged from hospital, they were on a visit (Shakh-Bagov did it many times).

Both of your pictures made me happy))))) Where did you find them if it's not a secret?

Thanks, Sarushka! It's too bad this photo is starting to polarize...that is turn into a negative,( see how the other ladies hats are fading )  though the part with the Big Pair is still okay...There is another photo from this time where TN is hard to see because of the polarization

While looking for the former photo , I found this one from the same group and one can see the polarization effecting the Big Pair's hats. I have thought these photos were taken when the girls had some of the nurses over socially for tea during the war as a treat. That would fit the other women and how they are dressed etc...but this is pure speculation

The lady actually looks like the Anya's  relative ( I believe her sister in law, Anne ) who is often mistaken for Anastasia  in album 3( when her face is cover with her hat! lol! ) ...and younger and thinner than Isa.

I have noticed that the skirt is different from ON's and TN's and it's pretty likely that MN and AN weren't there; but it could also be likely they were there and they wore different clothes from ON and TN - i have seen other pics of formal occasions where OT and TN were dressed alike, and MN & AN too, but with a different toilette from the Big Pairs... but who knows? We should have another pic from the same day with the misterious girl...

For a long time  I have wondered what in the world is sitting in the lap of the wounded officer who is next to TN? Then today I realized it could be a Humpty Dumpty doll...the dark circle above the face is a cap?

 Away it certainly could be and as such would be a witty thing to have in a military hospital run by royalty
 ...in a dark humor sort of way... the humor of servicemen

 "...and all the king 's horsemen and all the kings men could not put Humpty Dumpty back together again

Part of the joke seems to be  the serious expressions lol
seems some mascot in any case

also one of the men is wearing spurs. I wonder if he was visiting and was given a robe
 to wear as we would be given gloves today, because it seems merely  draped on

A Humpty Dumpty doll? I've never heard about a such toy... I always thought it was a mask on this photo. By the way, officer who is holding it is Sergey Melik-Adamov, others are from the Erivan regiment, like he. If you want, I can look for the names of the others - maybe it will tell us something about spurs ))

 would love to know more about the officers as always. this seems part of the photos of the Big Pair with " the Golden One"  sitting out side with others ...in fact Sergey Melik-Adamov is in those photos looking well, so they may been taken  later. I though it was a mask as well , but I now see arms and legs and it looks like Humpy Dumpy...which is from Alice in Wonderland...being both British and long before the Big Pair's time, it's not impossible

The photo looks like it was taken around 1909-1910...I think it's 1909 because of the haircut but I'm not sure

I think 1909 is right because it seems to me  now in 1910, Olga was sporting a bow...as the step before putting her hair up in 1911.

Returning to Humpty-Dumpty... You know, blessOTMA, I suddenly and accidentally found a story about Melik-Adamov and a doll! I doubt it was the doll we see on this photo, but may be, may be... It was happened at the time when the photo was taken.
"After the operation the little None (one of the wounded officers) was put to bed near the window. And at night Melik-Adamov managed to put on a curtain a baby-doll with the same blue eyes (like None's ones) and with a fluffy hair.
"Look, look, Your Majesty," - reported he to Tatiana and Olga at the morning, - "per night None gave birth to a child - the spitting image of his parent, but None is angry with him, he's grinding the teeth and all the time is trying to annihilate him, but can't get up from the bed."
Likeness was really striking: nobody could look at both of them without a laugh.
That evening they call Tatiana to the phone (she was operating her mother's phone) and informed her in a humorous form of the state of patients (None and his doll)."

I hope my translation is understandable ))

I can't estimate a place and a time. But I took it from the announcement of Buxhoeveden's memories (new edition). Now I'm waiting for my copy of this book. I think there is a comment to this photo inside.

I'm almost certain that this is from earlier than 1914 and it may be as earlier as 1912. You're right about TN having her hair...or at least it appears that way which ordinarily would make it no sooner than her 16th birthday in mid-1913. Additionally she also got typhoid during the Tercentenary celebrations earlier than year and they wound up shaving her head forcing on a wig. Her hair wasn't fully grown back even by mid-1914 as photos from that period indicate. She has more of an attractive short cut going there, whereas Olga clearly has her hair put up.

But look at her sister's particularly Anastasia and compare them to the formal photos from their 1914 sessions. AN looks much younger here and so does Olga. Marie's look was always more age "consistent" in my opinion but she still looks like a 12 or 13 year old girl (1911, '12) much more than a 14 or 15 year old (1913, '14).

Good questions though...perhaps someone can shed some light on this...
Title: Re: Photos of "The Big Pair"
Post by: Sarushka on February 08, 2013, 01:48:30 PM
I'm also inclined to say 1912. Olga wore her hair in the same style Tatiana is wearing here (ponytail tied with enormous ribbon) for much of 1910. It seems to have been a transitional style worn by 15-year-olds before putting the hair up, and Tatiana would have been 15 years old in the summer of 1912.

Definitely! The giveaway here is AN. She grew and changed quite a bit physically in the two years between 1912 and '14. And here she's clearly much younger than the girl we see in those 1914 formals.

Is this from the same famous video clip of OTMAA aboard the Standard playing Ring-Around-the-Rosie? Looks like the same dresses and ages Tatiana and Olga would have been at that time. I'm not 100% certain but I want to say that video was footage was taken sometime in 1906, maybe '07. Alexei is clearly very little. Probably two or three at the most.
Title: Re: Photos of "The Big Pair"
Post by: Kassafrass on December 18, 2013, 06:18:38 PM
I was thinking it had to be from the same time as the video judging by their ages, especially Olga. Would it also be around the same time of the photos the girls took on the Polar Star? Or was that a year later?
Title: Re: Photos of "The Big Pair"
Post by: Rodney_G. on December 19, 2013, 10:31:42 AM
1905/06?   The girls looking to be between eight or nine(Tatiana) , and ten or eleven (Olga). The outfits could have been worn over several years so they're an imperfect clue.
Title: Re: Photos of "The Big Pair"
Post by: Kassafrass on December 19, 2013, 06:34:34 PM
I hate dating those earlier photos. They can be so difficult. It has to be 05/06 come to think of it. Alexei was very young there and still with his long hair meaning it was before his third birthday.
Title: Re: Photos of "The Big Pair"
Post by: KarinK on December 20, 2013, 02:03:30 AM
My copy of that photo, as well as some other photos where the girls wear outfits of this style, was dated 1908 when I saved it, but I'm not sure about that. There are 1908 photos where they seem to look noticeably more mature, and this is closer in appearance to that film footage. My own guess for the footage has been 1906 since I think Alexei looks a little younger than in some of his long-haired photos and there's a 1905 Polar Star photo where the girls are in similar outfits while he's still being carried by a sailor. But then there's that ship photo of the whole family that I've seen dated 1907... I too find these early holidays tough to date.

Is it possible that the above photo is actually 1914?
Title: Re: Photos of "The Big Pair"
Post by: Ally Kumari on May 14, 2015, 08:30:11 AM
Yes, I believe so. Tatiana´s hairstyle is identical to the one she has in the famous 1914 photographs. Ribbon included.

Another photo of GD Tatiana Nikolaevna from Livadia in 1914

(http://i.imgur.com/1wCavqC.jpg)

It appears to me that she's wearing a similar or the same dress? Unfortunately it appears that I've yet to add any 1913 Livadia/Crimea photos of Tatiana to my collection on Dropbox yet and I cannot access them... but we all know the wig she wore in 1913.

The two photos appear to have been taken in roughly the same spot.  Does anybody know which balcony this is? 

Also, according to Helen Azar's translation of GD Olga's 1913 diary, Olga and her mother spent a lot of time out on the balcony.  I wonder if this is the one she was referring to in her diary entries.

Wonderful picture of the Big Pair and officers.  Olga and Tatiana appear to be wearing identical dresses, although the trim on Tatiana's dress is darker than Olga's.

Ahh, wouldn't it be nice if they'd had color photography then?

Actually they had. In fact, Sergey Prokudin Gorskii's colored photos of Russia from the early 20th century are available here:

(There is Gallery section)
 
You have noticed that Anastasia colored their b&w photos to match the actual colors.
