Laura--the 2nd pic you posted was taken in 1910, not 1913. ;)

I can tell this is Olga Alexandrovna, but can someone tell me what it says underneath?



Thanks!
Angie

I thought it looked like they were dancing in that first picture. These are all great photos that I have never seen. Thanks.
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!!!"

Is Nicky wearing a wig for the Onegin photographs? I definately don't remember his hair being THAT curly ;)
Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we're gone and wonder who we were? How bravely we fought? How fiercely we loved?

It looks like they put their legs through something, but I can't see clearly.

They're laying on a bench so that they hang off the edge.  Like when you're in a swimming pool and you lay your calfs on the ground and lean back in the water so that you're upside down.  Am I making sense? :-/

There's Tatiana, Olga (or Anastasia? I can't tell...), Maria, and Nicholas, as well as I think that's Anna Vyrubova, but who is the young man in the photograph with Nicky and the girls? It's def. not Alexei, this person looks too old.

The "young man" is their father larking about with them.

Hey Dmitry2,
I'm sure Lanie hit the nail on the head with the identitys. She does mention Nicholas, he's at the right end of the bench, but the "young man" is on the left side of the bench. I don't think we have an name indentity for him yet.

the "young man" is Rodianov, an officer of the Standardt and Nicholas' usual tennis partner at Livadia.
