I don't know how to post pictures on here, but here are some links to some photos. I believe these all are rare. Some of them I know for sure are.

They have been known for years(the last one can be found in Beinecke Romanov Albums in better quality).

My mistake. I look through their pictures very frequently and I have very rarely come across those.

At least a couple of these I haven't seen before, and a few I would say are pretty rare...in that they don't appear often on her or the web.

With regard to BlessOTMA's  reply 604 from "Rare Pictures XII", which see,the photo of OTM in mourning dresses for KR's 1915 funeral:

The best known version has Tatiana as well as Olga and Marie facing the camera with  a  straight sober look on her face.

But (if you can summon up that photo, in your mind ,or in fact) when I first saw that one, I literallly didn't know who was the female other than Olga and Tatiana there. They were easily recognizable, but in spite of being a Marie devotee (alright, I admit it), I just coulldn't believe that the girl on the l left was Mashka.  Even in the context of a mourning photo she seemed too , what? sober? short-haired? plain different?

Anyone else have that reaction?

I never had idea that the OTM photo could have been taken at the funeral.

I believe this is from 1915, Tatiana's outfit looks like the one she wore when she, Alexandra and Olga were photographed with members of her committee.

^ Isn't there a picture where Olga is sitting in the exact same spot with that book (or photo album) on her lap? I can't find the picture, but I'd remember she is wearing similar outfit, but without the hat.

I think this is the one you're thinking of:

That it the picture! Thank you, Dru. :)
I think I've also seen a fuller version of the same picture.

This gallery has it. It's always interesting to me when a photo, like this one of Olga, turns out to have a pair taken at the same time.

Described as March 1914 on the way to Yalta.



I don't remember seeing this 1916 photo in the previous thread.

Olga's smile is always such a pleasant surprise :)
