Reagan, that one's from the Yale Beinecke albums.  It looks like my version of it where I tried to clean it up.

I can't find another photo of all of them in Nicholas's cabin, but this looks like the same day on deck, judging by the dresses:

Hi!

Lanie, I'm really sorry if I ever uploaded on my albums a photo that's yours. I've got so much of them that I don't remember where they all come from. I hope you won't mind me...

Yeah, they're from the ale collection. Somebody knows if it really was 1908?
I think it's this summer, but I could be wrong.

Grandduchess_42, here are some more photos that go with the one you post. (1900) I agree, Olga's hair look a lot paller then usually. It must have been rather fair when she was small, it's often like that with kids: hair darken as they grow.

Nah, I don't mind.  It's funny seeing my scans everywhere tho!

There are definitely more of that day around somewhere.  Sarushka has 'em! ;)

Now she's questioning which Romanov it is! :D It's most definitely Olga, I posted the same picture yesterday on another thread on the forum titled 'Olga/Maria Looking the Same in Photos' and she must have posted it on there for other people's input.

I am a bit confused now? If you react to my last post Ilya is a man :-)

And the photo was brought out to the internet by him, as he is the one who scanned it in the Russian archives. In the past year he has done that with dozens of rare Romanov images.

If I misunderstood you, sorry!

I knew he was a man, the question is why I kept typing 'she' instead of 'he'? :D

I meant he posted the photo on his Tumblr to ask if it was Olga or Maria, a day after I posted the picture on here to show everyone on another thread that the picture could be mistaken for Maria when the Grand Duchess in the picture is Olga. I hope that makes more sense.

EDIT: I checked again; he posted it a month ago yesterday and asked if it was Olga or Maria. Loads of people on Tumblr agree it's Olga.
