Ella looks so young and pretty, do you have the year this was taken?

According the fashion, i`d say early 1890s.

I agree, it almost makes me think it isn't Zenaide, but it is right?  Has it been labeled or are you going by sight?

going off sight alone. The face caught my attention in how it resembed other photos of Zenaide. I don't know who the other lady is in the picture though...

That's middle of the 1880s.

I would love to read those letters. Ella and Alexandra Georgeivna of Greece were also quite close before she died, wonder if there is a correspondence there as well?

Yes. I think they were either in Russia or destroyed. Alexandra of Greece (Grand Duchess Paul) died young, so her papers were most likely to have been given back to Queen Olga.

According to Britannica encyclopedia, that kind of clothing became popular in 1885-1890. Ella looked younger than Zinaida all the time, IMO.
Thanks a lot for that wonderful translation, matushka! Ella knew what her friend felt at that moment and she gave her encouragement to uplift Zinaida’s hopes up. What a really good loving soul she has! 




Amazing colored fotos  by the most wonderful Yelena Aleksandrovna. Endless thank you very much!

that's a nice new photo Katenka.  Did you find it in a Russian book?  I'll bet there are old Youssupov albums still floating around with a lot of these photos. A shame they rarely see the light of day.
