I love this! You can see the work on her dress and the details of her jewelry. The one pendant looks like a navy signal flag with the Russian eagle. Too bad she's rocking the Princess Leia 'do, though.  ::)

That hairstyle ages her like nothing else.  : (

I think she was a little heavier in her weight at that time, too.

All in all it gives her an aged look.

What are they all looking at in the first picture?  They are all looking down, but I don't see any focus point.

The Tsar looks really short in comparison to Grand Duke Nikolai Nikolaevich.  Like a midget!

Both pictures have Nikolas Nikolaevich written on them.  At least that is what it looks like - the writing is faded.

If that is Mavra, they haven't mentioned her by name.

I agree with Thomas  that it is KR and Mavra. The place must be Pavlovsk.

There is another woman standing behind "Mavra" in the first picture.  You can just see her and it is not Empress Marie as the Dowager has on a hat as anyone who was visiting would have on a hat.

I wonder where the pictures came from originally and who wrote the names on them?  If Thomas is correct (and he usually is) then the names on the pictures are wrong except for Empress Alexandra and Nicholas II.

Nicholas II is still a midget compared to his relatives.
