Would you be able to post the later photos of Olga and Tatiana? :)

And I'm really very sure that the Grand Duchess on the right of the photo is Marie ...

Its a lovely photo, its one of my faves, even though it was done in captivity. They all look rather peaceful. Or is it just because they're tired?

Does everyone believe that picture of Tatiana, Alix and Olga was taken in 1918? I didn't believe that it was, since Alix is still wearing earings, and I thought that they were stripped of all jewllery? With the exception of some bracelettes that Alix was wearing because they were too tight to take off.   :-/ ???

It's Alix' favorite earings and I think she wore it when she was killed...
It's the famous pearls earings, she wear them on most of her photos

Yeah I never thought of that! Maybe she had a few small things that she could wear?

Or perhaps everything was not "stripped" from her until she went to Ekaterinburg. At Tobolsk they had a little more leeway.

The girls shaved their heads didn't they, or they were forced to, while they were in captivity? I believe I read that somewhere. That would explain the head scarves they are wearing in the photo.

Anyone read this characterization of Alexandra?:

"Her tragic, tear-lined face was
As sorrow carved in stone."

Not sure who the quote belongs to but it seems fairly accurate to me!

I believe their heads were shaved when the had the measles.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely, in a pretty and well preserved body; but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "Wow ---- What a ride!!!"

The whole family continued to wear some items of jewelry until their latter days in the Ipatiev house, when their personal jewelry was collected and locked in a small box.  This reportedly was a response to Nicholas' complaints of some pilfering of their personal effects by guards and service personnel who came to the house to clean, collect laundry, etc.  Nicholas received a receipt for the items collected, and the box was left on the premises until their deaths (although it was found empty, if I recall, by the White forces who took over the town shortly afterward).

As a matter of fact, if you look closely at the enlarged photo posted by Katherine, you'll notice that the daughter sitting to Alexandra's left is also wearing earrings.

This photo must have been taken very shortly before Nicholas, Alexandra, and Maria were removed from Tobolsk in late April 1918.  The parasol indicates they are sitting outside, and the lack of jackets indicates the weather was warm.  That doesn't leave much of a window.

Personally, I think the picture was doctored with a pencil. If you copy the larger copy of the photo and look at it close up with a graphic viewer, you can see it. Her hand around the umbrella distinctly looks like it was highlighted with pencil. Her mouth and the shadows around her eye looks penciled as well.
