Title: Photograph of Olga as a child
Post by: LarissaAnn on December 30, 2005, 01:47:08 PM
I've looked through all of the Photos of Olga threads and I cannot find this photo.  She's resting her head on her hand in a ruffled dress, I noticed that ZarevnaOlga has it on her icon (http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d8/LarissaAnn/Olgaasachild.jpg) If anyone has a bigger/full version of this photo I would totally appreciate it!  I think it might be an OTMAA series not sure though. Thanks
Lori

It's a lovely photograph--not just Olga, but in the artistic quality. She has such a wistful look.

This photo, and the ones of her sisters, were published in a contemporary magazine article entitled something like The Czar's Young Family--I can't recall the exact title right now. The attractiveness of the family and the prestige surrounding the Imperial throne really captured the attention of the press of the day which delighted in publishing formal and informal photos of the family--especially the children. I was amazed as I began trying to track down articles.

Around 1906, Alexander Palace

The second one Sophia posted (Olga & Tatiana in court dress) was actually taken in 1904. They wore court dress for the first time at their brother's christening.  :)

Hi!

Of course, Sarushka. 1904. My mistake, sorry. Must have been tired...school work...want some more photos, somebody? Well, ready or not, here they are!

Aboard the Polar Star, the imperial yacht the family used to own before the Standart. 1904, I'd say.
(http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Finland%201/th_0d8ff379.jpg) (http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Finland%201/0d8ff379.jpg)

In Finland, around 1907: Masha, Nastia, Alexei, Olya and Tanya. Aren't they beautiful?
(http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Finland%201/th_6f1aa85a.jpg) (http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Finland%201/6f1aa85a.jpg)

Aboard the Standart, 1908, I think: Maria, Olga, Tatiana and Anastasia
(http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Finland%201/th_e0481829.jpg) (http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Finland%201/e0481829.jpg)

1909, Peterhof. Picking flowers with Nastia
(http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Peterhof%201/th_eea3be09.jpg) (http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Peterhof%201/eea3be09.jpg)

About 1908, Peterhof again. With Maria and their dolls... :)
(http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Peterhof%201/th_c72ff04f.jpg) (http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Peterhof%201/c72ff04f.jpg)

Peterhof, 1903. Tatiana and Olga playing with poor Maria.
(http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Small%20kids%201/th_otm1903_1.jpg) (http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Small%20kids%201/otm1903_1.jpg)

1901, for Nastia's christening, with Tatiana and Maria.
(http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Formal%20Family%201/th_otm1901.jpg) (http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Formal%20Family%201/otm1901.jpg)

1904, for Alexei's christening: Maria and Tatiana, Olga in front and Nastia at the far right.
(http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Formal%20Family%201/th_1.jpg) (http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Formal%20Family%201/1.jpg)

Finally, in 1906, Olga, Alexei, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia. Don't ask me who colored this pic, I don't know!
(http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Formal%20Family%201/th_846f8e28.jpg) (http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f21/Sophia144/Formal%20Family%201/846f8e28.jpg)

I don't recall ever seeing this photo before. Where did you find it?

Reagan, that one's from the Yale Beinecke albums.  It looks like my version of it where I tried to clean it up.

I can't find another photo of all of them in Nicholas's cabin, but this looks like the same day on deck, judging by the dresses:

Hi!

Lanie, I'm really sorry if I ever uploaded on my albums a photo that's yours. I've got so much of them that I don't remember where they all come from. I hope you won't mind me...

Yeah, they're from the ale collection. Somebody knows if it really was 1908?
I think it's this summer, but I could be wrong.

Grandduchess_42, here are some more photos that go with the one you post. (1900) I agree, Olga's hair look a lot paller then usually. It must have been rather fair when she was small, it's often like that with kids: hair darken as they grow.

Alix and Maria, Olga and Tatiana

Now she's questioning which Romanov it is! :D It's most definitely Olga, I posted the same picture yesterday on another thread on the forum titled 'Olga/Maria Looking the Same in Photos' and she must have posted it on there for other people's input.
Title: Re: Photograph of Olga as a child
Post by: Ally Kumari on September 23, 2016, 01:42:28 PM
I am a bit confused now? If you react to my last post Ilya is a man :-)

And the photo was brought out to the internet by him, as he is the one who scanned it in the Russian archives. In the past year he has done that with dozens of rare Romanov images.

If I misunderstood you, sorry!
Title: Re: Photograph of Olga as a child
Post by: GDSophie on September 23, 2016, 02:05:53 PM
I knew he was a man, the question is why I kept typing 'she' instead of 'he'? :D

I meant he posted the photo on his Tumblr to ask if it was Olga or Maria, a day after I posted the picture on here to show everyone on another thread that the picture could be mistaken for Maria when the Grand Duchess in the picture is Olga. I hope that makes more sense.

EDIT: I checked again; he posted it a month ago yesterday and asked if it was Olga or Maria. Loads of people on Tumblr agree it's Olga.
