Oh my this is rare. Now I am wondering if both photos were taken in Alexandra's dressing room in the Alexander Palace and that is the door to her bath.

In another thread, similar questions were raised about this photo:



They appear to have been taken in the same room. I believe that there was some discussion as to whether it was taken at Peterhof (the Lower Dacha I assume if that's true).

I don't think it's Alix's dressing room at the AP--the layout and decor are different. Also, I know that the imperial family were rather lax with Rasputin, but I can't imagine him being allowed in the Empress's dressing room. It just seems so inappropriate!

She looks very blond here.  Mind you, the picture is in black and white.

Well hair darkens over time, mine was originally blonde at her age then turned a dark brown which it has stayed. Also I assume it's very sunny considering how much light is shown in the picture.

Maria was born a blond baby.

Here she is as a toddler with Olga

Now I can not decide whether I prefer the toddler or adult photos of OTMA. I mean, I find any unseen photo rare, but I can not decide which are more rare -those taken while they were so young or the ones taken during the captivity...? :) Anyone's opnion?

A picture of Maria smoking. So I've seen pictures with Olga and Anastasia smoking, you're next Tatiana if you ever did.

Wow, but is that really a cigarette? It was taken in late spring of 1914 in Finland.

Nena, my thoughts exactly.  It looks like a cigarette at first glance, seemingly dangling from her lips like some street thug, but on closer examination I see it stops just short of her lower lip.  It could very well a defect in the photograph.

Hmm people have said it is a cigarette but now that you mention it, it does look like just a line in the picture. Amusing that it looks like it's hanging from her lips, I think that's why people mistook it for a cigarette.
