Yes, itīs right to a lot of boys in last of 1800s to begin of 1900s (ubtil circa 1915) was clothes in femaledressed - I have a lot pictures among others of my grandfather. I thougher from begin to that was a picture of a other familymember until my grandfather told for me to that was himself and that was normal between 1880s to 1910s!

I see at the left Nicholas Ii, Alexandra and Gd serge Alexandrovich, At the right, Gd Vladimir Alexandrovich and perhaps Maria Pavlovna, but im in doubt with this one cause it could be also Ella.-

Grand Duchess Elizaveta is by GD Sergei's side. I've seen slightly a better version of the photo.

I don't think it's a girl - I would say it was Feodor before his hair was cut. He has Feodor's Alexander III-like face (very similar also to his cousin Maria Nikolaevna)

Regarding boys wearing dresses and looking girlish, one most also remember that they did it in a culture that is different from today. I don't think people back then thought that they dressed males like females, but rather that they dressed them in childrens clothes, period. Saying these boys are dressed like girls is from our viewpoint in a modern culture, judging them from our way of living.
Boys wearing dresses can still be seen in some countries and cultures at their christening.

Sorry for being off-topic.

Can anyone identify some of the participants here?



Here's another version of this image. I have it labelled as being dated 1900 and a meeting of the Nobility association with N&A etc.  I think there was a nobles association building in Moscow as I've a photo of it decorated for the coronation, but don't know much else about it.

I found this image lablled "Empress of Russia and Empress of Austria" and presumably it is a pic from 1895 state visit of Nicholas and Alexandra to Austria (hence the lady inblack is Elisabeth Sisi). Can anybody confirm that?

Out of curiosity, does anyone know who the woman in the bottom right corner of this picture is?



Just wondering, because she has a striking resemblance to my mom!

The woman is Maria Ivanovna Wishnyakova, OTMAA's nurse (Aleksei's nanny). She was blamed to have had affair with Rasputin, and that is why she got suspension by Empress in 1911. The photo comes from 1908, and was taken at Tsarskoe Selo.
